Maude is the sophisticated one, Betsy the determined one, Tammy the down-to-earth one. Carole the nice one, and Donna the one who thinks too much for her own good. Back then, of course, they had no idea they were making friends for life. They made no pacts or vows. But as the years passed and their friendship grew, their bonds became an anchor of constancy in a world of change. Interspersed among Barretts portraits of the Girls evolving lives are clever snapshots of some of the most controversial celebrities of the times, women whose journeys to fame speak eloquently about our most cherished feminine fantasies of having beauty, love, and personal transformation make our dreams come true.
