praise from a John Girl

Just got this from Kathy Lowinger, for many years the publisher of Tundra Books and now herself an acclaimed author, about the memoir. Thank you, Kathy!

I love the book and its perceptive view about adolescence. I too fell madly and deeply in love with the Beatles, but mine was John. I didn’t want to break up his marriage so mine was a tragic romance. 
This is a book that any adult of my generation would love, regardless of how we incorporated the Beatles into our lives. The fact is, we all did.
