San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book
The year is 1967 and something new is sweeping across America: good vibes, bad vibes, psychedelic music, lab-designed drugs, anti-war protests, racial tension, free love, dropouts, flower children.
An age of innocence, a time of danger: The Summer of Love.
San Francisco is the Summer of Love: a convergence where American youth seek a New Explanation, music is free in the park, and violence lurks just around the corner.
Lost in these strange and wondrous days, teenager Susan Bell, alias Starbright, has run away from the straight suburbs of Cleveland to find her troubled best friend. Her path will cross with Chiron Cat's Eye in Draco, a strange and beautiful young man who has journeyed farther than she could ever imagine. With the guidance of Ruby A. Maverick, a feisty half-black, half-white Haight-Ashbury hip merchant, Starbright and Chi will discover a love spanning five centuries.
But Chi has traveled across the centuries on a vital mission-nothing less than saving the Universe. He, Starbright, and Ruby must unite to save all of spacetime from demonic entities who crave their annihilation.
