Summary
Three friends explore what it means to be happy, what it means to grow up, and how difficult it is to do both together. As summer ends, Sam's world unexpectedly shatters twice: Suzie's parents are moving to a new city to save their marriage, and his own mother has suddenly left the house. Over the years Suzie thinks of Sam and her closest friend Bella, but makes no attempt to reconnect. Years later, a chance meeting with Sam's older brother will reunite her with both Sam and Bella-- and force her to confront her past and her friends
Summary
"Spanning over a decade, told in alternating voices, The Grown Ups explores the indelible bonds of friends and family and the connections that form between Sam, Suzie, and Bella as they navigate parents, siblings, and one another on the way to becoming who they really want to be when they grow up."--Back cover
