"In the turbulent summer of 1974, Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the eighth-grade social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the "coolest girl in the world" moves in across the street and wants to be her friend. Tully Hart seems to have it all--beauty, brains, ambition. On the surface they are as opposite as two people can be, but they make a pact to be best friends forever; by summer's end they've become TullyandKate. Inseparable. For thirty years, Tully and Kate are there for each other, weathering the storms of friendship--jealousy, anger, resentment. They think they've survived it all until an unexpected betrayal puts their bond to the ultimate test."--Back cover.
