Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, six Penn students shared a house, naively certain that their friendships would endure - until the death of their ringleader and dear friend Bea splintered the group for good. Now, mostly estranged from one another, the remaining five reluctantly gather at that same house on the eve of what would have been Bea's fortieth birthday.

But along with the return of the friends come old grudges, unrequited feelings, and buried secrets. Catherine, the CEO of a domestic empire, and Owen, a stay-at-home dad, were picture-perfect college sweethearts - but now teeter on the brink of disaster. Lindy, a well-known musician, is pushing middle age in an industry that's all about youth and slowly self-destructing as she grapples with her own identity. Behind his smile, handsome plastic surgeon Colin harbors the heartbreaking truth about his own history with Bea. And Annie carefully curates her life on Instagram and Facebook, keeping up appearances so she doesn't have to face the truth about her own empty reality.

Reunited in the place where so many dreams began, and bolstered by the hope of healing, each of them is forced to confront the past.

    "Dull "

    This book never went anywhere, I kept expecting something exciting to happen but it never did. I found all of the main characters to be whiny and annoying, I am unsure if that was the narration or the characters themselves.

    "Saint Elmo's fire meets the Penn Quakers"

    Old friends are really worth the effort. That is the essential message of this novel. Allison Winn Scotch and Julia Whelan are a formidable new team. As always, Ms. Whelan makes a good book a great listen. Ready for a screenplay, the story will entertain you throughout and have you reflecting on your own long-term friendships that may need some rekindling.

    "I liked the story much more than the characters"

    This was an interesting storyline and could have been a pleasant change from the books I usually listen to, if the characters hadn't been so immature, and belligerent. There were several times during the book that the way they talked, yelled, and cussed at each other made me very irritable while listening. I'm really in the fence about recommending

    "Language a bit painful at times."

    The story line was interesting, but GD was used so many times you would think it was a war story.

    "Nice find"

    This was a good book, and not just because Julia Whelan is probably the best female narrator I have ever listen to. I was starting college 20 years ago so it felt easy to me, like these people could have been my friends. None of the characters were perfect but there wasnt a struggle to like them, even in the wake of questionable behavior. There are a few weak points but overall it was Nice and Smooth....just like the nineties were for me.

    Story
    "Feels like old friends"

    Really liked this book, a departure from the typical suspense books I usually choose. Right from the start, you will feel like these are old friends and you're catching up on their lives. Some you will like more than others but everyone is flawed in their own way. It is a slow, meandering kind of book that doesn't bore - it moves along quickly when it needs to. Great narration.
