Deborah Goodrich Royce recommends
Andrea Hoffman Goes All In (2022)
Diane Cohen Schneider
"Ms. Cohen Schneider evokes both the ebullience and the excess of that era [1980s], all the while charming the reader with her heroine's trajectory through her twenties. I found myself rooting for her, sympathizing with her, and fondly remembering my own less-than-straight path through life. An engaging coming-of-age story that will appeal to all ages."
