Abstract:

"Twenty-five years ago, a group of ninth graders produced a Saturday Night Live-style videotape to cheer up their ailing friend. The show's running time was only ninety minutes, but it had a lasting impact: Becca laughed her way through recovery, and the group-Jordana, Seth, Holly, and Lex-became her supporting cast for life. On the silver anniversary of Becca Night Live, the friends reunite over the Fourth of July to celebrate Becca's good health--but nothing goes as planned. The happy holiday card facades everyone's been hiding behind quickly crumble and give way to an unforgettable three days filled with complex moral dilemmas and life-altering choices. Through humor, drama, and the alternating perspectives of five characters, The Cast explores the power of forgiveness, the importance of authenticity, and the immeasurable value of deep, enduring friendships to buoy us when life plays out differently than expected."--
