By Sophia Silver


It’s the summer of 2002. Violet and Stella are nine-years old and inseparable. They spend their days playing in waves, catching butterflies, sending wishes to fairies, and spying on nude adults at the beach. But then, the summer ends. Stella has friends back home but would rather talk with them about mermaids than tampons. A lonely Violet attracts the attention of a vicious bully, while silently processing her changing body. Over the next few summers, the girls come together, but puberty, boys, family trauma, and the desire to “fit in” all begin to threaten the magic of their friendship.
