** The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller **** The New York Times Top Ten Bestseller **The UK's best selling hardback debut novel of 2016Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 in the Evening Standard, Observer and The TimesCalifornia. The summer of 1969. In the dying days of a floundering counter-culture a young girl is unwittingly caught up in unthinkable violence, and a decision made at this moment, on the cusp of adulthood, will shape her life....'This book will break your heart and blow your mind.' Lena DunhamEvie Boyd is desperate to be noticed. In the summer of 1969, empty days stretch out under the California sun. The smell of honeysuckle thickens the air and the sidewalks radiate heat.Until she sees them. The snatch of cold laughter. Hair, long and uncombed. Dirty dresses skimming the tops of thighs. Cheap rings like a second set of knuckles. The girls.And at the centre, Russell. Russell and the ranch, down a long dirt track and deep in the hills. Incense and clumsily strummed chords. Rumours of sex, frenzied gatherings, teen runaways.Was there a warning, a sign of things to come? Or is Evie already too enthralled by the girls to see that her life is about to be changed forever?


Tightly bound, no damage to the cover and looks to be clean and bright inside.
