Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

Firefly Lane is about two best friends "TullyandKate" and their life together. Kate Mularkey meets Tully Hart in the summer of ‘74. Kate is the shy, nerdy type when you meet her, but when she meets "the coolest girl in the world" (Tully) she becomes popular by association. Tully, on the other hand, has the coolest friends, the biggest boobs, the hottest clothes, yet she lacks a "real" friend and the love of a family. Upon that meeting, we are taken on a journey through high school, college, post-college years, careers, marriage, kids, etc. This is the story of two unlikely friends and their friendship that spans well over 30+ years. It showcases the ups and downs they are faced with and the consequences of selfishness and bad decisions. Most importantly, it shows the amazing power of what it means to have a friend at your side during the good times and the bad times.

I found this to be not only about friendship, but also about husbands and wives, mothers and daughters. I was on such an emotional ride from beginning to end. I loved all the fun, pop culture references - the music, fashion and clothes. I was hooked from the start and had a tough time putting it down. Keep a box of tissues handy - I was sobbing at the end and it was 2am by the time I finished it, but it was definitely worth the ride.

This is the first book I read by Kristin Hannah and, needless to say, I am already searching for another one. This is chick lit at it’s best. I highly recommend it!

This was my first read by this author as well. I really enjoyed it and now I'm reading True Colors. I think you'll like this one too.
