Being a teenage girl isn't easy. For author Maureen Stanton, who grew up in Walpole in the '70s, that time in her life was further complicated by her parents' separation, her addiction to angel dust and years of delinquent behavior.
She chronicles those years — and what they taught her — in her latest book, "Body Leaping Backward: Memoir of A Delinquent Girlhood."
Maureen Stanton will give a talk about her memoir Thursday evning at An Unlikely Story in Plainville at 7 p.m. Click here for more information.
