Love & Haight
Seventeen-year-old Chloe and her best friend MJ head to San Francisco to ring in the New Year, circa 1971. But Chloe has an ulterior motive—and a secret. She’s pregnant and has devised a plan not to be. As soon as the girls cross the Golden Gate, the scheme starts to unravel. In the mecca of easy love, it seems some things aren’t so easy.

“In the wild-and-crazy rock ‘n’ roll, aura-reading, yoga-filled, feathery environment of San Francisco, Chloe comes to terms with decisions only she can make. A well-framed historical, with a wholly realized setting and believable, rich, likable characters.”
“Carlton transports readers to a decade when abortion was becoming a more open, if still only occasionally legal, possibility…This is an important book.”
