Product Information

"Rufi Thorpe's open-hearted, open-eyed debut tells the engrossing story of a long friendship between two complex women and investigates the unpredictable, often baffling ways that luck shapes all of our lives. Generous, soulful, and tough." -- Maggie Shipstead, bestselling author of SEATING ARRANGEMENTS "Rufi Thorpe had me at the first line in her funny, sad, delightful debut novel, The Girls from Corona del Mar. A story about friendship, love, loss, and the sheer unexpectedness of life. Reading this book was like getting to know old friends; I was sorry when I turned the last page." -- Anton DiSclafani, of THE YONAHLOSSEE RIDING CAMP FOR GIRLS "The Girls from Corona del Mar is one of those rare books that breaks down the wall between reality and fiction; the entire time I read this book I ached as if it were my own best friend whose life was unraveling before me. Day and night I thought of her-I still think of her! Rufi Thorpe is a brilliant writer and this is a beautiful first book." -- Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS "The Girls from Corona del Mar is unflinchingly realistic in its portrayal of life's twists and turns. Yet it's also full of heart. As Thorpe chronicles a complicated friendship across decades, continents and reversals in fortune, she brings to life two unforgettable characters." -- J. Courtney Sullivan, author of MAINE and THE ENGAGEMENTS "What's most impressive is its incredible vitality, its searing intensity. Turn off your phone, close the blinds, and let it take you." -- Ann Packer, author of THE DIVE FROM CLAUSEN'S PIER
