Gil Morrow, ...
Gil Morrow, former grunge musician turned history professor, joins them as Selah's date for the weekend. After coming face to face with the one who got away, he decides he's waited long enough to get the girl. With the support of old friends, a few wishing rocks, the world's largest burrowing clam, and a hot lumberjack thrown into the mix, Gil reminds Maggie that forty-something isn't too old for second chances.
Can we learn to love the life we have and let go of who we expected to be? What happens when the generation from The Breakfast Club and Reality Bites meets The Big Chill? Come spend a weekend with these Generation X-ers as they share laughter, tears, life's ups and downs, old stories, and new beginnings.

"What happens when the generation from The Breakfast Club and Reality Bites meets The Big Chill?" I will tell you...you will get a breath of fresh air.
I love friend banter and this group has plenty of it. I felt like an additional member snooping in on their weekend. Maggie & Gil have the awkward love found, love lost and love found again aura going and add in feisty one liners from Quinn & Selah and you have a pretty fun group. One I can see myself being friends with and doing the same thing, "pushing" Maggie and Gil together at last.
It was easy for me to giggle along, being from their generation I was able to follow along with the jokes from the 90's and appreciate the feeling of being old when you hit forty when you really are not that old at all.
I love a book that flows along and can put a smile on your face. This would be the perfect beach book! Loved it.

I LOVED This story!! Daisy Prescott gave us real characters of my generation dealing with real emotion, angst, challenges and just life! The music and area references were completely appreciated, too. Maggie and Gil are 2 very special people, and I would be friends with the whole group! I loved learning each and every backstory!! I also now have a nagging feeling to go to the beach with my college buddies!!! Well done Daisy!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book surprized me. I like chick lit; I'm of the Baby Boomer generation, and my extended family lives in Seattle and some are grads of Evergreen. But I'm an east coast girl. I kept wondering if this would work in say Maine or the Cape.
I really cared for Maggie. Gil grew on, Selah and the CT couple...not so much.
This is worth reading

The author switches between present tense and past tense in her writing. This is not a switch between past and present, it is the use of tense in her writing style. Sometimes this contradiction in tense appears in the same paragraph and is disconcerting to follow.
The story drags on interminably and the juvenile sexual innuendos and just plain juvenile sex talk are way over the top. I did not bother to finish this book.

I absolutely loved this book! I often found myself immersed in the story sitting right along with Maggie and her friends having a glass of wine and smelling the salty air of the ocean.
Maggie and her friends get together at her cabin for the weekend before their college reunion in the fall. An unexpected guest arrives with one of her friends. Enters *sighs* Gil.
Ms. Prescott takes you on a pleasant ride reconnecting two people who could have been but life had other plans. This was a real feel good story and really hit me in the heart with fond memories of vinyl's, mixed tapes, summers at the beach and wishing rocks which I still have because I thought they were cool looking. I will cherish this book for a long time.
