“Hood, known primarily for her adult novels, offers up a coming-of-age story steeped in nostalgia, humor, and heart. There’s obvious appeal for Beatles fans, but Trudy, irrepressible in her struggle to maintain friendships in a changing world, will win many admirers of her own.”

The novel Tradition goes into the privileged world of a private boarding school where only a few have power.  It's told from the perspective of Jules and Bax.  Jules is a good student who is starting to see the problems of the school and how power and status plays out.  Bax is a scholarship student who has been trained to be aggressive on the rink as a hockey goalie.  Their friendship and standing up for what's right is at the center of this tale.
