Perennials A novel

Mandy Berman

Book - 2017

"Rachel and Fiona meet at Camp Marigold, in the lush hills of the Berkshires when they are pre-adolescents: girls who are on the cusp of young-adulthood, insecure and curious in equal turns about sex, desperate for recognition and a sense of belonging to something greater than themselves. Rachel is a tough, feisty girl from Manhattan; Fiona a more reticient girl from the suburbs, always in Rachel's shadow. Together with their families, lovers, fellow counselors and campers the two will... navigate the transition from girlhood to womanhood, learning who they are and who they want to become. Perennials is a beautifully distilled love song to the pains and pleasures of growing up. Full of wit, insight, and a piercing emotional keenness, Perennials will transport readers to a world of forests and lakes, birdsongs and campfires, where nothing ever changes and everything does over the course of a single summer."--
