From writing for very young people (see The Merry Miller, No Ducks for Dinner etc.) Roslays Hall has made the transition to teen age fiction and translates sixteen year old downs and ups into high humor. Frannie Gay's main problem is Michael who calls her ""Muffin Brain"" and treats her like some old thing around the house, but who nevertheless keeps coming to see her. Her second trouble is Katherine Kane, known as ""Killer"", who has a way with boys and is taking the community by storm. Though Michael is immune to her charms, Killer maneuvers things so that it looks as if he has been attached to her string too. The whole thing bursts just as Michael is beginning to take real notice of Frannie, and expands into a pretty gay growing up summer for everyone concerned. Light and airy and very reminiscent of Beverly Cleary's Fifteen.
