Erica Larson
Loved it as a teen fascinated with the counter culture. As an adult it reads more like a cautionary tale. My romanticized idea of communal living is no longer but this was a book from the past worth revisiting.
One of my all time favorite books! Rocked my world in high school! It's my bag, baby!

I loved these cautionary YA tales when I was a kid. Good characterization, and not too preachy.
Fantastic read about youths taking up residence in a Boston apartment, living the hippie lifestyle. Young Wendy escapes from her boring life in Rhode Island and meets a group of people who become her friends. She smokes pot and raps with her housemates about various topics. In the meantime she falls for young Donald, a street dude, while trying to decide what she wants to do with her life.

I loved it. I felt I was back in 1968.
