“It’s sharply observant…subtly, insistently feminist.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES

Sometimes friendships are all the fireworks you need.

The summer of America’s Bicentennial finds Diana, an artist, and Alice, a professor’s wife, thrown together through a faculty babysitting
co-op at Ohio State. As they navigate migraines and marriage crises, tantrums and road trips, they build an expansive and intimate friendship as full of possibility, and as fleeting, as summer.
