Golden Days

Golden Days is the story of the intense late-teen 1995 friendship between bookish Becky and star-dusted Zoe Golden—music, clubs, art collaboration, spirituality, sex—and what happens when one terrifying night changes their lives and destroys their friendship forever.

We meet first-person protagonist Becky again seventeen years later, drunk for days and mourning the end of her picture-perfect marriage. When Zoe reappears, Becky is forced—with the help of her oldest friend, Meg—to reconsider her interpretation of that summer’s tragic events, where blame lies and her true nature.
