KIRKUS REVIEW

With none of the flippancy of Out on a Limb or the somewhat saccharine quality of the Barton books, this is an at all times human and particularly appealing story of one girl's bout with infantile paralysis, its emotional aftermath of bitterness and fear and unresigned resentment. Kathy comes down with infantile her first year at college, and learns that she is permanently crippled. The three men who play a vital part in her adjustment, the sympathy which never slips into sentimentality, the quality of youth which is very genuine,- combine to make this particularly affecting and engaging.
