I'D RATHER BE KISSED

A successor to Corliss Archer, Dolores Keith at fifteen plans to be a famous writer when she grows up, and likes to pretend she is nineteen. She spats with the boy next door; she idealizes the carpet man (who turns out to be father of a girl in her class at school), she learns some of the facts of life when her English teacher gets engaged, when she experiments with deceiving her mother, etc. A trip to New York puts some finishing touches on budding maturity. Deft, debonair- and disarming.
