It was supposed to be their perfect summer-beach, boys, the Boulevard. Friends since childhood, Laurie Greenspan and Carla Moore, fifteen years old, couldn't be more different. Wealthy, reckless Carla is always looking for the next thrill: everything she does has to be wilder, faster, more on the edge. Studious, more conventional Laurie vows that this summer, she'll finally be able to keep up-to be as daring and cool as Carla. It's not until Laurie rescues her best friend from a bikers' party, and an overdose, that she understands how Carla has always used her to make herself feel better. There is no happy ending for Carla, but for Laurie there is a better understanding with her family, and a promise of a real relationship with a boy.
