The Gossip of the Starlings Nina de Gramont


This book will undoubtedly be comopared to A Separate Peace(and the quote from John Knowles in the frontspiece won't help) but it is much much more than the update of a classic. The reader immediately reminded of their own adolesence, and with that reminder, finds themselves holding their breath for these girls. It is a gripping story of the power of the friendships that we have in youth--and how those friendships color who we are as adults. Do not miss.
