Buchanan High School senior Ellen Druette has a secure
spot on the Varsity cheerleading squad, a first-string
football player boyfriend, and a solid plan for her life.
Then the Swenson twins sweep into town in their
matching Chevy Bel Air convertibles. Tall, blonde, and
gorgeous, the twins are quickly accepted into the
cheerleading squad, and Ellen’s plan begins to unravel.
Though Laurie Swenson makes the first move on her, it’
s Ginny who captures her heart.
But malicious forces are at work in the Swenson family,
and Ginny, their scapegoat, is convicted of crimes she
didn’t commit and sent to prison. Determined to prove
her lover’s innocence, Ellen investigates the case even
as she completes her pre-law studies and enters law
By the time Ginny is released from prison, she and Ellen
have grown apart. They’re still attracted to one another,
but neither is confident of the other’s feelings. Are they
really in love, or are they just very good friends?
Against the turbulent, psychedelic backdrop of the
Sixties, Ellen and Ginny drift in and out of each other’s
lives as they strive for the courage to reveal their hearts.
