Everything comes to a boil at an meeting which Jill earns her keep and she realizes who she is meant to be with!
I love reading books that are set in the 1980's just because I'm a 80's baby! If you love reading books about the 80's, then I wouldn't pass up this book, it truly has a little bit of everything in it including remembering how phones were in bags!! This book also has a comedic side to it that will have you laughing out loud at what is going on and I can't wait to see what is to come from Garine next!!
Thank You to Garine B. Isassi for writing such a good book that has the best of music and the 80's all in one!!
