This is an engaging and quickly read story. Author Shari McNally has so crisply painted her characters the reader comes to care for them immediately. I could not wait to see how these teens navigate the tricky path toward their own stories. My hope is that the author will give these wonderful characters a 20 year reunion in the dry Mohave Desert. 5 Stars
Beautifully written. It took no time to hook me in. I felt the emotions and experiences of the characters as if they were real people. To newcomer Shari McNally I say, Bravo and great way to start, I look forward to more.
I typically lean towards novels discussing characters in their adult lives, so this was an unusual purchase for me. Somehow, the author was able to bring me back to a time I had thought I'd long forgotten. It is a bitter sweet feeling this book brought out in me. I don't know how she came up with these people, but I saw a little of myself in each one. I'm left with a little peace I didn't have before. Maybe I can understand that the teenagers today aren't that much different then we once were. Mrs. McNally doesn't miss the mark on this book. Every annoying, macho, preppy, misunderstood cheerleader, rebel, solid straight and gay lead characters, friday night high school mistakes are here. Then an event happens which collides these friends in an unusual way. I'm left understanding my choices better now. When this becomes a film, I'll be in line for a ticket.
