It's a fun story about a group of high school friends at the end of summer in the year 2000 getting ready to go their separate ways. If you liked the film American Graffiti, you'll love this take on the teen angst, music and cars of a different generation. I'm also a big fan of the author - my wife! :) --Chris
In this engaging follow up to A Visit from the Good Squad (also highly recommended, but not necessary to enjoy this book), various characters wrestle with the complications of life and ever-increasing "social" technologies.
This novel is about the rise and fall of an eccentric Wall Street couple in the 1920s.
Their story is surrounded by rumors and innuendo, and so is the book. The story unfolds through different sections offering different perspectives on the couple at the heart of it all. A different kind of book and a fun read.
While it's a fictionalized biography, the author gives you a real sense of the person on which the character is based. Also, in her notes Kate Quinn reveals what is true and what is fiction. I love that. I would have done so much better in history if it were presented this way!!
