From USA TODAY bestselling author, Lindy Zart, comes 1981: Jessie's Girl
The road trip from Minnesota to Pennsylvania and back is meant to be the final adventure before four friends go their separate ways in the fall.
Except nothing goes as intended, beginning with the unexpected addition of Catherine Tate, Jessie Keller’s new girlfriend. Sam Kent denies his attraction to her while simultaneously deflecting unusual interest from his pal Hannah Lopez. Dickie Dean is the socially inept book lover who surprises them all.
Amidst a malfunctioning vehicle, being caught in the middle of a robbery, beer drinking, mosquito attacks, and other teenage drama, the five experience courage, broken hearts, fear, and laughter. Most importantly, they make memories.
Before the internet…before sext messages, selfies, like buttons, and d**k picks…epic loves and broken hearts played out offline, on mixtapes that became the self-made soundtracks of a generation.

The back of Hannah’s head thumps against the wall. “Seriously, what do you two find even the slightest bit likable about him?”
“Sometimes I wonder.” I toss off the blanket and stand, pretending like I’m not only in a pair of boxers. “Can I use the shower in your room?” I ask Hannah.
Lips parted and eyes locked on my frame, she doesn’t immediately answer.
“Yeah. Sure.” Hannah swallows and looks away. “I’ll go with you. I need to shower too.” She gets up, going still as her words, and what they imply, sink in. “Not that we’ll be showering at the same time.”
A vision of Hannah, naked and covered in soap suds, ravages my mind, steals any lingering thoughts of the young girl she once was, and replaces them with what is standing before me, and it isn’t a young girl. When did it happen? Why didn’t I notice before now?
“Yes. No.” I wince. “I mean, right, we won’t be.”
We stare at each other, both standing but unmoving.
