KIRKUS REVIEW

Sophistication to Soul and riches to rags in this romance for girls set in a Vermont college. Robin Young, transfer from a swish California college enters Skymountain College in Vermont --thrilled, not with the courses of study, but with the prospect of taking instruction from the best women's ski instructor in the country. Arriving in a new car and with plenty of fashionable clothes, Robin meets rugged John Fifer, a rustic contrast to her suave admirer at home. Soon Robin begins to realize that friendliness and sincerity are more satisfying than the gilded life and when her mother loses the family money and Robin must work for her tuition, she finds she can take it. Also a brief fling in her former expensive circle points up the real qualities in John. ""I love you""s are exchanged in the happy ending. Slick- doubling love and skiing.
