East Coast Girls (2020)
Kerry Kletter
"A brilliant firecracker of a book. East Coast Girls perfectly captures that time in a girl's life when friendship and the summer sun is enough to make you feel invincible--and the fallout when you realize that you're not. A beautiful, heartfelt, and life-affirming story about the things worth holding onto and those moments when you just have to let go."
