Written with humor and poignancy, Summerlings is a powerful testament to love and friendship amid uncertain times–a Cold War coming-of-age story in which three best friends confront their fears of the Bomb, Russian spies, bullies, and their role in the tragic event that ushers them into adulthood.  It’s the summer of 1959.
