this is a character driven book about 6 best friends that meet at summer camp in 1974, and their lives for the next 30 years.
i wanted to love this book, but some parts were very long-winded and i wanted to get to something *good*.
it wasn't boring, per-se, but there is a lot going on and Wolitzer's writing reminds me a little of Franzen.
Julie was hard to like. the story is mostly from her pov and she's likable, but the way she constantly compares her lives to her friends and her envy make it really hard to be on her side.
