An easy beach read for those looking to not use their brain, Summer of ‘69, is for you! This book features Creedence Clearwater Revival, JFK, Woodstock, and the Vietnam war all woven into a family of 6 and their 4 kids. Taking place in one summer (hence the title) the reader will identify with all members of the family as they each must go through a painful experience. Expect great song references and recommendations from this novel.
