It's the summer of 1983 and best friends, Salome, Annie and Kendra have left university to embark on adulthood. Three very different girls with very different paths ahead.

- Sal, the aspiring journalist whose personal demons threaten to destroy everything she has achieved.
- Annie, the capable domestic beauty, convinced that marriage will give her everything she wants.
- Kendra, the daughter of chic, liberal parents who, searching for her own identity, encounters a life she never expected.

As they navigate the decade of ra-ra skirts and shoulder pads, Duran Duran and Margaret Thatcher, they discover that the future is what happens to you, not what you plan.

Their interwoven tale captures brilliantly what it is to learn the exhilarating and painful truths about love, work, family and the ties of friendship.

Review:

Exquisite time travel . . . Every detail - from fashion, design and music to social tribes and verbal tics - is spot on (Guardian)

Wonderfully evokes that ping-pong between trivial and tremendous so characteristic of the Eighties . . . great on atmosphere . . . An engaging debut, alive with human sympathy (Wendy Holden Daily Mail)

Engrossing . . . brilliantly captures the complexities of female friendship (Good Housekeeping)

A poignant look at the juggling act women must maintain if they're to carve out a career, and how friendships define life's tribulations (Glamour)

Warm and entertaining . . . captures the excitement of being young and glamorous at a time when the sky really did seem to be the limit (Kate Saunders The Times)

'Sapphic sex, shoulder pads and Spandau Ballet . . . Too seductive a storyline to wait for the inevitable film (Tatler)

Shulman's well-executed debut is committed to portraying life in all its contradictory, chaotic, celebratory form. A novel both full of heart and comfortable in its own skin (Observer)

An impressive debut . . . the best-quality chick-lit available and a thoroughly enjoyable summer read (Daily Express)

A fun summer read . . . a page-turner, making me nostalgic for a time when youthful female friendships had to be worked at, face to face over a bottle of wine and some nasty pink taramasalata, rather than simply maintained with a few mouse clicks and a "share" button (FT)

An enjoyable romp back to a more flamboyant time (Sunday Express)
