BookPage Notable Title 

When beautiful, reckless Southern belle Zelda Sayre meets F. Scott Fitzgerald at a country club dance in 1918, she is 17 years old and he is a young army lieutenant. Before long, the “unforgettable” Zelda has fallen for him despite his unsuitability: Scott isn’t prominent or even a Southerner, and keeps insisting that his writing will bring him both fortune and fame.
