KIRKUS REVIEW

A first novel, and a good one! It should have somewhat the appeal of Ruth Suckow's The Folks, in its warm, wideawake presentation of a small New England town, with the focus on the group of alert, eager youngsters. The characterization of the two Upton boys, -- one sober, paternalistic, the other an engaging romantic, passing through the ups and downs of puppy love -- is a genuine piece of work. The succession of small town events, the reactions of all concerned to the escapades of the boys and girls, make a homespun and vital book, with many charming moments.
