Continuing the life of Cinda Hollister (see Cinda, 1954 p. 201), these episodes take her through a Christmas season of emotional adventures. First there is the aura of the approaching holidays, family preparations, her older brother and the friend he is going to bring home from Princeton and so forth. But these combine with more local social problems as two boys at high school become Cinda's problems. First there is Page, flashy, the driver of a yellow convertible and the son of a rich man who wants to show his affluence through his boy. Then there is quiet, sullen Paul Banning. When Cinda gets him to talk, out comes the background of a miserly home in which Mr. Banning has spent every cent on himself and made Paul feel unwanted and overworked. The lines are a bit broadly drawn here; one could hardly miss the point. But Miss Lambert's writing continues full of the fluffy, tinsellated and starry eyed observations about life which girls who wish they were like Cinda will enjoy.
