Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four friends,
Two couples,
One year that will change their lives.

Liz and Sean, both beautiful and popular, are madly in love and completely misunderstood by their parents. Their best friends, Maggie and Dennis, are shy and awkward, but willing to take the first tentative steps toward a romance of their own. Yet before either couple can enjoy true happiness, life conspires against them, threatening to destroy their friendships completely.

Synopsis:

Zindel's masterful, provocative book is as relevant today in its emotional impact as it was when it was first published 35 years ago.

About the Author

Paul Zindel (1936-2003) was discovered in the mid-1960s by Charlotte Zolotow, who had seen a television production of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds and decided that Zindel must try his hand at young adult fiction. Mr. Zindel went on to become a pioneer in the genre as we know it today.

His books for HarperCollins include The Doom Stone and Loch, both Recommended Books for the Reluctant YA Reader (ALA), and the tragicomic memoir The Pigman & Me, which School Library Journal said in a starred review "allows readers a glimpse of Zindel's youth, gives them insight into some of his fictional characters, and provides many examples of universal experiences that will make them laugh and cry." The Pigman & Me was both a 1993 ALA Best Book for Young Adults and a 1993 ALA Notable Children's Book.
