1981: Jessie’s Girl

Love in the 80s: A New Adult Mix
Genre- New Adult
Publication Date- February 26th
Published By- WaWa Productions
 

 

 

Blurb:

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.

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.

My Review:

*Disclaimer: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

Jessie’s Girl by Lindy Zart took me back to the days of watching ‘80s movies. Jessie’s Girl has the coming-of-age trip and the sweet teen romance so prevalent in the ‘80s. The story tugged at my heart with its bittersweet plot of one last road trip for the friends (plus one tag-a-long girlfriend) before they would all be parting ways for college and adult life. Zart’s characters always hook me, and this story was no different. The characters are on the cusp of adulthood and trying to discover who they are while each of them deals with their own personal demons. I instantly loved Hannah with her spitfire attitude and her fierce loyalty. Sam is an endearing character; he truly loves his friends even though he’s also not perfect. Dickie is probably my favorite character. There’s just something about a bookworm I can’t resist. Although I think the story was the exact length it needed to be, I was sad that it ended so soon! This was a wonderful read, and I highly recommend it.
