A poignant, perceptive, witty novel with authenticity and emotion in multiple plot strands, weaving in themes of grief, loss, redemption, achievement, and love. After her closest friend dies in 1968, Meryl Lee Kowalski goes off to St. Elene's Preparatory Academy for Girls, where she struggles with school tradition and preferences for wealthy students. In a parallel story, Matt Coffin ends up on Maine's coast near St. Elene's with a pillowcase full of money lifted from the leader of a gang.
