YOUR LOVING SISTER, PAT DOWNING by Frances Fitzpatrick Wright


Email this review


A light-headed book, amusing enough, but too, too cute -- foolish, slapdash stuff by an author who has done better. In the form of letters to her older sister, Pat Downing spills her meagre, silly little self and her problems with a great air of importance and phoney naivete. Some of the material has appeared in magazines -- but it is still too slick for book value -- though perhaps youth does ride expressions to death, it gets a bit boring as Pat almost dies longing for a permanent; almost dies wanting a Great Dane; almost dies wanting a dance in a hall; just about expires until she drives the family car, is killingly eager to have her aunt marry the rancher, and so on. Pat's troubles are authentic enough teen age agony -- but its all been better done.
