In the summer of 1974, Tully Hart, "the coolest girl in the world", moves in across the street from the hopelessly uncool Kate Mularkey. The two make a pact to be best friends forever and soon become the inseparable TullyandKate.
Spanning more than three decades, this is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives.
It is a beautiful, heartwarming (yet heartbreaking at times) story that has become one of my favorites.
