When a series of passenger airplanes crashed in Elizabeth, N.J., within a three-month period in 1951-1952, Judy Blume was a teenager. "These events have lingered in my mind ever since," says Blume. Against this background, Blume uses her imagination to bring us the lives of three generations of families, friends, and strangers who will be profoundly affected by these events, either directly or indirectly. This is Blume's first novel for adults since "Summer Sisters," the largely popular bestseller still sold today.

Miri Ammerman is a teenager in Elizabeth, New Jersey when three airplanes crash between December 1951 and February 1952. The story opens when she is flying back to Elizabeth to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the crashes. As she recounts the horrendous events that affect her family during those tumultuous months, the reader is drawn back to a world long gone. Through the lives of various characters, you can almost touch a long ago era when TV was in black and white; people only went to restaurants for only Sunday and special occasion dinners; and New Jersey gangsters were establishing themselves in Las Vegas.
