My Vintage Summer

(2008)
A novel by

 

"Great popular women's fiction with a bit of bite. Highly entertaining and sophisticated."
Clare Dowling


"Wonderfully truthful about these wild young girls, dizzy and dangerous, exploding with life and music . . ."
Tessa Hadley


"...beautiful, bittersweet book, fizzing with music, about a woman determined to keep the dreams of her youth vibrantly alive."
Carmen Reid


"Poignant, romantic and exciting - a compelling debut from an original new talent."
Lucie Whitehouse


For us it all began in the summer of '76, the year the sun scorched the grass the colour of sand and no-one could sprinkle their lawns or take a bath, and the year I could no longer run around without my top on. Meet Lizzie and Kim as they grow from small-town adolescents to women on the hedonistic stage of London in the early eighties. There they join Kim's older sister, Vonnie, an untameable force of nature who is everything they'd like to be. Or is she? Told with an infectious energy, "My Vintage Summer" is for those who remember dressing up for their first night out, the first song they danced to with their best friend, their first love - and their first life-altering mistake. It's a story of what happens when life doesn't turn out as you had expected.
