This was a book I read back in the 80s that was set in the 60s (I believe). It was about 2 best girlfriends who were school age. Their families went to the beach together every summer and they would hang out on the boardwalk. When school started back one of the girls started hanging with all the popular girls and kind of stopped being friends with the less popular girl. All the popular girls wore madras skirts and Yardley makeup. The less popular girl got involved in the school's drama club and worked behind the scenes of the plays. The more popular girl was in a bad car crash but survived it. In my mind the book had blue on the cover. Any help would be appreciated.
