A vibrant story of friendship, first experience and a summer that couldn't last forever
"For us it all began in the summer of '76, the year the sun scorched the grass the colour of sand and no-one could sprinkle their lawns or take a bath, and the year I could no longer run around without my top on."
Meet Lizzie and Kim as they grow from small-town adolescents to women on the hedonistic stage of London in the early 80s. There they join Kim's older sister, Vonnie, an untameable force of nature who is everything they'd like to be. Or is she?
Told with an infectious energy, My Vintage Summer is for those who remember dressing up for their first night out, the first song they danced to with their best friend, their first love – and their first life-altering mistake.
