It's the summer of 1976 on Fire Island, where feathered hair and the Bicentennial celebration reign. Jean, a sometimes cruel, often insecure, and always envious rich girl, is accustomed to living in her glamorous older sister’s shadow. So when Gil Burke, a handsome newcomer with uncertain ties to one of the most powerful families in the exclusive enclave of Sunken Haven, notices Jean — not her sister — Jean is smitten. Then Fritz, a girl from outside the gilded gates who humiliated Jean in the Island’s tennis championship last year, falls for Gil herself. Soon the girls are competing for much more than a tennis trophy, with higher stakes than either of them can imagine.

Told through the alternating perspectives of Jean and Fritz, as they experience feeling like an outsider and first love.

  1. I enjoy reading historical fiction as well as stories told in dual points of view. Fire Island is a place I've never visited, so the setting sounds exciting too.

  2. This playlist totally had me wanting to make my own 70's playlist. I love Saturday Night by Bay City Rollers-- and EVERYTHING Steve Miller Band!!
