Summary
The summer that Nixon resigns, six teenagers at a summer camp for the arts become inseparable. Decades later the bond remains powerful, but so much else has changed. The kind of creativity that is rewarded at age fifteen is not always enough to propel someone through life at age thirty; not everyone can sustain in adulthood what seems so special in adolescence. Their friendships endure and even prosper, but also underscore the differences in their fates, in what their talents have become, and the shapes their lives have taken. --Provided by Publisher
