Read full description of the books:
Initially, Victoria and Caitlin seem polar opposites. Caitlin is wild, rich, and beautiful. Vix is shy, working-class, almost plain by comparison. Yet the two preteens strike up a friendship, and Caitlin invites Vix to join her family on Martha's Vineyard for the summer. Over the next six summers, the two discover boys, secrets, and sex. Then Vix falls in love, and everything changes. The girls, now women, grow apart: Vix as a staid executive in Manhattan, Caitlin as a libertine on an endless European jaunt. When Caitlin surprises Vix with news of her wedding, the pair finds events of the past affecting their present, and they finally must unravel their shared feelings for the same man. Judy Blume, a best-selling author of books for young adults, brings her same insight into the female psyche in this, her third captivating novel for adults.
