Maybe you weren’t born yet or were but feel like you missed out on something, like that “free love” thing. As Llayne Robertson, the main character, says to her roommate, “If this is the age of free love, how come were always sitting here at the pizza parlor?”This novel portrays that tantalizing and turbulent era at a small, midwest college, Central Michigan University.

Romantic relationships hold promise and peril. Friendships forge for life. Some faculty members are saints and some are sinners. Tragic secrets become sequestered in lonely hearts. Humor is honed as a survival skill. And the best lessons are learned outside of the classroom.Two opposing forces overshadow everything: The Vietnam War and the peace movement. However, in spite of differences, war veterans and peace-loving hippies at CMU become enmeshed in a mutual goal: They want to get Llayne elected as homecoming queen.Of course, she naively believes that being queen will make all of her dreams come true.

Instead, love and adversity force her to wake up and face reality. An unexpected twist of fate completes the process. She finally, unequivocally, has to grow up.That, Llayne discovers, is the best homecoming of all.
