KIRKUS REVIEW

When Vicky Pageant's college career is interrupted after her freshman year and she is sent to Seattle to help a great-aunt run a derelict diner, she believes that her world is shattered. Brought up by a sheltered mother and a generous, but absent uncle, Vick dreams of a gay life on the stage, of wealthy beaux, and finally of a husband who will devote his life to her protection. The diner, its challenges, and a realistic young man provide the catalysts and within a year Vicky forsakes her adolescent dreams for the more satisfying and possible aspirations of a mature woman. Once again, the inevitable prescription of tender romance flavored by diligent but ultimately fruitful enterprise, prove the cureall for a stock teen-age crisis.
