This book was a joy to read. I'm so glad I read it. It was a time in Katie & her friends life, a meander through their teenage years in the Seventies. They were contending with the Vietnam war, drugs & changing prospects. I can hear traces of Bruce Springsteen characters throughout. I so recommend this book............ wish it wasn't a debut but one of many that Judy Chicurel had written & there was a whole list of her books waiting for me to read.
