Description

In this “optimistic, exuberant tale,” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) two teens find unexpected romance and harmony amid the crowd at a legendary music festival.

Michael is unsure about most things. Go to college? Enlist in the military? Break up with his girlfriend? All big question marks. He is living for the moment, and all he wants is to enjoy a few days at the biggest concert of the summer.

Cora lives in the town hosting the music festival. She’s volunteering in the medical tent. She’s like that, always the good girl. But there is something in the air at this concert, and suddenly Cora finds herself wanting to push her own boundaries.

When Michael and Cora meet, sparks fly, hearts race, and all the things love songs are written about come true. And they’ve got three days of the most epic summer ahead of them…

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 06, 2015 – It's 1969, and like the rest of Bethel, N.Y., 17-year-old Cora Fletcher, a volunteer candy striper at the Woodstock festival, is preparing for the hundreds of thousands of young people descending on the area for what promises to be one of the greatest music events of all time. Michael is an eager concertgoer who drops acid and ends up in the medical tent, where he meets Cora. In short chapters full of vivid historical detail, Tash (The Mapmaker and the Ghost) takes readers through each of the major acts at Woodstock (the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, among others), plus all of the drugs, mud, and shed inhibitions. As Cora and Michael meander (and sometimes stumble) through the chaos, they evoke the spirit of the festival in their awe for the music, adding their own dash of romance to the free love around them. The narrative loses its way a bit as Tash throws a wrench into Michael and Cora's budding romance, but the author's love for the era and this defining musical moment shines through. Ages 12 up.
