Hastings in the 70's isn't the coolest place to be and as Rachel and Susan teeter on the brink of adolescence they realise it is safer to stick together. Their friendship protects them against their parents, classmates, stoned hippies, emotional neediness and weediness among other things ... When Dave an art student from London enters their lives, they discover that things they've dreamed off are not what they thought, things like sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. Then punk music detonates the status quo and nothing will ever be the same again. This is a funny and poignant novel about growing up in the seventies, the brittle nature of teenage friendship and hair-raising twists and turns of emerging adulthood
