The main character is flawed, intriguing, and someone you wish you could be. Emilee travels through her teenage years that are sentimental, heartbreaking, defiant, joyful, and symbolic. It’s a book you’ve been waiting to find. “

Naive in the 90s is real, raw, and of course totally rad!

Have you ever wanted to read some ones diary? Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a teen in the 90s? Well now’s your chance!

This Creative Non-Fiction book is transcribed from real life diaries of a confused and naive girl during high school in one of the raddest eras ever. Comparable to the 70’s classic Go Ask Alice, but with one big difference, this is 100% true.

Emily is a naive teen in the 90s just looking for love, acceptance, understanding, and of course FUN! Follow along while she navigates life in the early/mid 90s. Hear how things have changed and how it felt to reread her own words, from a very different perspective, almost 3 decades later.

This book is full of nostalgia for those who grew up back in the day. But some things are universal when it comes to growing up and trying to figure out the world & our place in it. Making this a great book to share with the younger generations as they go through the trials and tribulations of their teen years. Showing them that they aren’t alone in how they feel, and that the darkness doesn’t last forever.

Naive in the 90s is relatable, raw, authentic, unique, heartfelt and at times cringe-worthy. This real life account of a time when things were both simple and chaotic, touches on topics that many young adults are affected by; family, friends, relationships, self-harm, eating, want for acceptance and understanding as well as other topics. Unabashedly real in a time of filters and fakeness, this book is a breath of fresh air.


For authenticity’s sake and for a true to life experience. Naive in the 90s is ONLY available in paperback form.
