It's the summer of 1982, and for Scott and Cath, everything is about to change.

Growing up across the street from each other, Scott and Cath have been best friends for most of their lives. Now they've graduated high school, and Cath is off to college while Scott stays at home trying to get his band off the ground. Neither of them realized that their first year after high school would be so hard.

Fortunately, Scott and Cath still have each other, and it's through their letters that they survive heartache, annoying roommates, family dramas, and the pressure of figuring out what to do with the rest of their lives. And through it all, they realize that the only person they've ever wanted to turn to is each other. But does that mean they should think about being more than friends? One thing is clear, Change is an inescapable part of growing up, and we share unbreakable bonds with the friends who help us navigate it.

This funny, extraordinary, and deeply moving book set to an awesome '80s soundtrack captures all the beautiful confusion and emotional intensity we find on the verge of adulthood...and first love.

Scott and Cath, best friends since the age of five, are now separated by hundreds of miles while she is off at college in North Carolina and he remains in Maryland, working at his fathers clothing shop. The next year in their friendship, 1982 to 1983, unfolds as a series of letters. Playful banter, private jokes, dark family secrets, and major life changes are all explored in the intimate exchanges, with stationery headers subtly denoting shifts in location and circumstance. The effect is a bit like snooping through someone elses mail as adult author Kun (Everybody Says Hello) and newcomer Mullen craft separate and authentic voices for their protagonists. There are a few hiccups when the format becomes an illogical plot device, as when its used to deliver news of a sudden death, despite the availability of telephones. But more often than not the correspondence allows for a deep understanding of Scott and Caths thoughts, feelings, and ruminations on the events changing their lives. Ages 12up. Agent: Steven Axelrod, Axelrod Agency. (Nov.)
