KIRKUS REVIEW

If this romance of seventeen-year-old Amy Winslow has anything to say it is that there is as much snobbery in Indianapolis as there has been reputed to be in the Eastern or Southern states. The heroine, who is described as being ""not exactly pretty"", but endowed with every conceivable physical attribute, sets about staunchly to making a career of herself, when her socialite father dies leaving her penniless. Needless to say she succeeds as she also succeeds in her romantic endeavor. Characters are disposed of with dispatch -- a woman is killed, a rival leaves town, flighty mama is safely married off -- and in the end it is an ecstatic Amy who faces life. Much ado about nothing.
