Set in an upper Midwest suburb in the mid-1980s, Lizzie is a 13-year-old living with her brother and recently divorced mother. Her best friend is 13-year-old Evie, with whom she believes she shares every thought and secret as only pre-pubescent girls can. Evie lives across the street in the charmed Verver house with her sister Dusty, who’s “a deeply glamorous seventeen” in Lizzie’s eyes.
