Today someone (...a very special someone!) informed me that summer was in full swing back home. It reminded me of the Summer of '42. I found this record in a thrift store about seven years ago. I instantly loved the music, it reminded me a lot of the soundtrack for the old animated version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (a life long obsession).
So then about four or five years ago I found the book, Summer of '42, in the same thrift store. I loved the soundtrack so much that I bought the book right away and loved that too. It's a coming of age story, and doesn't shy away from anything (one of the few books I love that really isn't intended for children)
I think I'm going to finally seek out the film and watch it. It's about time. Anyway, this is my favorite song from the soundtrack, It's the main theme.
