(From the publisher):
Morgan and Jimmy's friendship was born when they were - seventeen years ago. Neither can remember a time when they weren't best friends - laughing, teasing, caring, and having fun.
Jimmy first learned to dance by watching old Fred Astaire movies and making Morgan play Ginger Rogers. He is a vibrant practical joker who knows how to bring out the sarcastic, excitable side of the usually more reserved Morgan. The two do everything together, going in and out of Chicago for auditions and acting workshops, Christmas shopping, even an ear piercing, always verbally sparring in their affectionate, wisecracking way. Until the day the unexpected happens and Morgan must learn to be on her own.
Julie Reece Deaver tells the compelling story of this special friendship. The deep reality of her prose makes a rare book that cannot be soon forgotten by anyone who has ever seen his alter ego in a best friend.
