Firefly Lane is one of Kristin Hannah’s older titles, revitalized by the popular Netflix series. Kate Malarkey and Tully Hart are two teen girls coming of age in 1974, and are as different as night and day. Kate is a shy bookworm from a stable family, and wild popular Tully makes a name for herself in their eighth grade class as she privately struggles with a single, drug addict mother who repeatedly abandons her. The girls are neighbors, and form an unlikely friendship that will take them into adulthood and beyond. They make very different decisions about family and career, which challenges their friendship. Fly Away is the sequel, and focuses on their memories, regrets, and family relationships.
