    One thought on “The Last of the California Girls”

    1. Beautifully written story about teen angst set against the background of 60s California when the world was changing - from surfing to the Summer of Love to Altamont. About growing up and breaking away from parents and their expectations. About first love and all its heartbreak. This funny literate book takes place against the background of a generation's music - the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones etc.

    2. I read this book based on a teen lit author's high recommendation. What a disappointment. I hated the book so much that I even skipped over one of the sex scenes because I couldn't care less about the characters! Yep. True story.
