Late 70s book

I am looking for a book that I read in the late '70s-early '80s.  It was about a group of high school/college friends and I seem to remember the era was the late '60s.  The girl moved in with her boyfriend because she became pregnant, then he began drinking heavily.  One of the friends parents was wealthy and towards the end of the book they were at his house at the pool and I think he committed suicide.  I think the cover had a convertible with a group of kids in the car.  Thanks!
