Jessie’s Girl by Lindy Zart (Young Adult)
I seriously love Lindy Zart. In my opinion, she cannot write a bad book. The year is 1981, and five friends go on a road trip that forever changes their lives. The dynamic between the five friends is amazing and realistic. Lindy Zart always knows how to tap into making you feel what the characters are feeling and what they are thinking. She has a way of making the characters come to life in such a way that you feel like you are right there with them.

I seriously loved all of the characters from the main character Sam Kent to the secondary characters. My only complaint with this book is that it was too short. Seriously it made me laugh, cry, and escape the drama of my real life. Kudos to you Lindy for writing another amazing story.

I give this story 5/5 Platypires and I will recommend it to others.

Jessie's Girl is a part of a Love in the 80's book series.

The year is 1981. The music is on point and the feel of the book is nostalgic.

I was born in 1981, so I don't remember the specific details of that year firsthand, but as a child born in that era, you tend to learn quickly as you're growing up. From the mention of Air Supply to the bold choices of color combinations... the eighties are alive and well in this book.

Putting the decade aside and focusing solely on the story itself... there was a lot to love about this novella about a group of friends spending their last summer together on a road trip from Minnesota to Pennsylvania.

It begins with Jessie, who obnoxiously wakes up his friend Sam in wee hours of the morning to start their road trip. Soon Sam discovers that Jessie is bringing along an unexpected guest, Catherine, his new girlfriend, whom he is immediately attracted to. Add to the mix Hannah, the strong, independent best friend and Dickie, the socially awkward bookworm and you've got quite the mix of personalities to fit into a small car going across the country.

I don't want to give too much away about the book because it's so much more fun going in with less information and discovering it on your own.

This is a book about much more than a road trip with friends. Each character goes on their own personal journey as they overcome fear, discover new and relive old feelings, break out of their comfort zone... changing the dynamic of their close group without even realizing it.

There were plenty of laugh out loud moments, as well as parts where my heart beat a little faster -- whether from excitement or from curiosity of what would happen next.

So I thought I'd set the mood while reading this shortish story. I put on my Breakfast Club soundtrack, grabbed a pair of really thick socks that I scrunched down. You know what I'm talking about. Found an insanely old scrunchie and put my hair up in a wild ponytail. My daughter said I looked kinda freaky. I said this was all the rage back in the day. She was unimpressed. Anyway, I love all things Lindy. Her stories suck you in & make your heart sing. She has this way of making you NEED to know everything about her characters and she fills you with such anticipation for what's to come. I love it!

Jessie's Girl is about a last road trip between 4 friends + 1 last minute addition. These people have known each other for all their lives and yet, they are just finally seeing each other in a new light. Whether it's the impending forced separation due to their after high school plans, or the close proximity driving through several states all crammed in a tiny car, these friends discover that the relationships they may have had at the beginning of the trip will never be the same. The quiet one stands up for himself. The bully gets knocked down a notch or two. The sensible one finally sees his best friend in a new light and the girl stuck in the perpetual "friend zone" manages to open the eyes of her true love.

This story is fun, makes me remember the simplicity of just driving around with friends and nostalgic for my childhood. Such a fun, quick read that, in true Lindy form, leaves you wanting more.

It begins with a road trip. The four friends will go their separate ways in two months. Four different lives, four different journeys. The dynamics between these four friends shifts while on a road trip together. They disclose information about each other that had not been revealed before.

Story's told from Sam's POV. It's a short story consisting of five chapters. Four friends set out on a road trip before heading off in different directions. During the trip everyone is acting differently and strangely. Some adventurous stuff happens along the way. Drinking alcohol and playing truth or dare helps pass the time. Catherine seems to be the catalyst that starts the confessional during the trip.

I wish it had been longer than five chapters. I would have liked more information regarding their childhood together as friends. I would have liked more in regards to their future plans and how they achieved living different lives. It was a decent read. Some sweet and innocent romance occurred but for the most part it was PG rated.
In order to get a higher rating I would prefer to read all ten authors short stories in a compilation series. Nine more stories follow the eighties new adult mix from nine other authors.
