TINA AND DAVID

What seems for much of the way a promisingly offbeat little novel -- about an eighteen year-old British working girl who finds herself communicating by note with a monstrously shy boy who literally can't speak to girls -- turns into a pale romance after the two finally get together for a carnival ride which loosens David's tongue to the point that he babbles till midnight about his now vanished hangup. . . whereupon it turns out that neither of them has much to say, though Tina's drab family life is nicely articulated throughout.
