Robin and Ruby by K.M. Soehnlein

From the author, K.M. Soehnlein: ROBIN AND RUBY updates the story of the brother and sister of THE WORLD OF NORMAL BOYS. I wrote that novel over 10 years ago with no plans to write a sequel. But I never really let go of the characters. You don’t have to have read the first novel to get into this one — it’s set during the summer of 1985 — St. Elmo’s Fire, Live Aid, the first HIV tests — and it takes place in Philadelphia and on the Jersey Shore (in the same town as that trainwreck of a reality show).

Robin is now a theater major with a knack for drama; Ruby, his younger sister, has emerged from her God Squad days as a kind of New Wave atheist. They’re both ending relationships and starting new ones. There’s sex and romance and alcohol and cocaine — it’s the ’80s after all — but it’s also about that moment in your early 20s when you realize the decisions are all yours to make, and no one else will solve your problems for you.
