I tracked down this book because my great-grandmother mentioned reading it in her diary in 1941. I thought it would be a period piece, something dated but perhaps interesting.
Was I wrong!
It was an INCREDIBLY funny and smart book about a teenage girl going through what teenage girls of all eras go through – dealing with boys, getting in and out with the groups of girls, school, parents, and especially an annoying older sister.
The writing is excellent, and each chapter stands alone as sort of a mini-story. Read one a night and savor each one.
This is perfect for any teenage girl in your life, but is also amazingly fun for older women as well!
