Blast from the Past!


Love the 80s? A laugh out loud, coming-of-age comedy with a heartwarming conclusion you won't see coming! Hold on for the ride as these bodacious, bubblegum-pop princesses skate you back through the days of bad perms, bathroom bullies, bogus curfews, boy crushes, and burping contests!

Pittsburgh, 1985 . . .

It's not easy being the new girl, but it doesn't take long for Randi Gattano to snag a new best friend as totally rad as she is. Randi and Tanya have everything in common-big hair, big dreams, big imaginations, and an even bigger obsession with scoring tickets to see their favorite pop queen live. How far will they go in their determination to let nothing stand in the way of the greatest night of their 13-year-old lives? And what will they ultimately learn about friendship, family, and fate?



“Looking for that perfect "tween" book?

“The perfect “tween” book with an added journey through the “historic” 1980s. 
A fun combination…” 

“…It reminds us that every generation has to struggle with coming of age and find ways to fit in while being true to one's self.”

“Likable characters, funny, clever, an honest reflection of what it's like to be a teenager in the 80s. This is a quick, easy, and fun read everyone will enjoy.” 

“I am in love with this book!” 

“The author brings it all back…the music, smoke-filled bathrooms, the frustrating inconvenience of having to look things up in the dictionary and wait out never-ending busy signals…original, well written…”
