BOOKS

Cherry Cherry is about a young girl, Sophie, and her obsession with her best friend’s older sister in the months before high school.

It's a summer full of wonder and impossible longing, with Sophie stuck between narrowing paths, pained by possibility and the fleeting, aching beauty of being an adolescent girl.
