KIRKUS REVIEW

Another soap opera transplanted to the teen age level in which the heroine, a seventeen-year-old state-sider living in Hawaii, is described as not being a pretty girl, but subsequently endowed with all the attributes of a siren. Kay, one of a large family who live in very grand style indeed but seam to be victims of severe economic anxiety, is a strong-willed egoist, intent upon destpoying all obstacles which impede her plan for studying landscape architecture in Switserland. But beneath that armor of iron lies a vulnerable heart which is liberated by romance and a whole series of miraculosly provident events. An earnest effort to combine a career story with a timely account of Hawaii results here in an insipid blend of adolesoent wish fulfillment and cliche.
