I've always had a strong infatuation with the 60's. In this novel, Cline does a great job in displaying this era. Through the eyes of a young girl entering her teen years, we follow the main character as she becomes associated with the followers of Charles Manson. Watching her grow up whilst idolizing his followers, we are able to see the character completely transform. This book is one of my all time favorites and is perfect for anyone who not only loves the era, but for anyone who is struggling to discover themselves in a world in which they aren't sure where they fit in.
Mesmerized by a band of girls in the park she perceives as enjoying a life of free and careless abandon, 1960s teen Evie Boyd becomes obsessed with gaining acceptance into their circle, only to find herself drawn into a cult and seduced by its charismatic leader. Reading-group guide available. A first novel. Reprint.
