Love, friendship, rock 'n' roll, and war. As senior year comes to a close, Ziggy, Mickey, Cheryl, Nancy, Don, and Phil are on the razor's edge of change in the City of Angels. With the Vietnam War and civil rights movement in the air, the future seems as full of uncertainty as it does excitement. Through journal entries, notes, letters, and interconnected poems, the year 1965 in six high school friends' lives is followed with humor, pain, drama, and truth. An interview with author Sherry Shahan, along with photos and a playlist, provide insight into the creation of this powerful and unforgettable novel.
