Hannah Gavener is fourteen in the summer of 1991. In the magazines she reads, celebrities plan elaborate weddings; in Hannah’s own life, her parents’ marriage is crumbling. And somewhere in between those two extremes—just maybe—lie the answers to love’s most bewildering questions.
Among her stubborn father, irrepressible cousin Fig, college crush Henry, and the boyfriends who adore her or break her heart, none of the relationships in Hannah’s life are without complications. By the time she’s in her late twenties, Hannah has finally figured out what she wants most—but she doesn’t yet know whether she’ll find the courage to go after it.
