    P.S. Longer Letter Later

    by Paula Danziger Ann M. Martin

    In this spirited coming-of-age story, best friends Elizabeth and Tara Starr now live in different towns, but they continue their friendship through letters. Danziger writes in Tara’s voice, and Martin in Elizabeth’s, in this complex and emotionally rich novel about two friends coping with overwhelming change. "A striking insightful epistolary novel. The authors’ distinctive voices give the collaboration a rare spontaneity and realism."—Publishers Weekly

An element of mystery is instantly added when someone -- the girls don't know who -- leaves copies of a very special book on their doorstop, with instructions to read and discuss it. Olivia and Nikki also get books, and soon the girls are starting their own book club -- with some very interesting ties between the books they're reading and the things they're facing over the summer.

About This Book

Elizabeth and Tara*Starr are totally different. Tara* Starr wears glitter and sequins, loves to be the center of attention, and is the only child of young parents who are taking a long time to grow up. Elizabeth is shy and quiet, hates being the center of attention, and lives in a house in which possessions are more important than feelings. So of course they're best friends.

Now that Tara*Starr has moved away, the girls continue their friendship through letters. Than life changes for both of them. While Tara*Starr's family settles down, Elizabeth's falls apart. Their letters chronicle these events, and the realization that they can depend on each other and on themselves.

Paula Danziger and Ann M. Martin combine their peerless talents to tell this rich and complex story.
