Written in 1982, this electrifying novel about sex, drugs, and decadence in pre-Miami Vice Florida, follows a delinquent clique of teenage girls through nightclubs, roller discos, and seedy South Beach bars in search of anything to keep the party going. Driven by an inexhaustible enthusiasm, the girls navigate a series of potentially dangerous situations with naïve ease, radiating their infectious light like a disco ball and turning even the darkest circumstances into a dance party. Lauded for its unflinchingly honest portrayal of strong, outspoken, resourceful young women whose sole motivation was to have a good time, the book stands in stark contrast to the male chauvinism of the era and still resonates today. Critics have called it “an essential examination of the joys of recklessness” and “an addictive story in which every sentence glistens with sticky sweet summer heat.”
