About this item

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 to each other that they survive heartache, annoying roommates, family dramas and the pressure to figure 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 an unbreakable bond with the friends who help us navigate it.

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