Set in the 1970s, this nostalgic coming-of-age story follows two friends through their many adventures, growing pains, joys, and losses.
New Jersey wild-child Justine Andrews spends her summers in Eva Thompson’s sleepy Massachusetts town. Justine, an outspoken feminist, thrives on raising hell while skirting the law. Eva, a sheltered Catholic girl, teeters between obeying her cautious nature and abandoning restraint to revel in the excitement Justine creates. They forge a fiercely loyal bond spanning decades through juvenile pranks; first boyfriends; the era of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll; marriage; and beyond.
Will a man Eva trusted her entire life destroy her dreams for the future? Will Justine’s need for revenge lead them into serious danger? Exactly how far would you go for your best friend?

As a baby boomer and growing up as a teenager in the early 70’s, I felt that the authors did an amazing job hooking me into this story with the sights, sounds and memories of this time period. I'm not one to typically write reviews, however because I love books that place me back in time, I needed to comment on this extremely enjoyable coming of age novel. I am glad that there are books like this out there because I feel others should be able to feel the same nostalgia I felt through reading this book!
