KIRKUS REVIEW

Miss Lanetta Terwilliger, strictest of English teachers, declares that she will take over the coachless Carleton High football team. ""Tiger"" does take over, in her peculiar college bloomers. Yelling instructions from the sideline, she teaches football with the same fierce determination which has made her famous in the classroom. Through it all, there's Loren and his hopeless thoughts about the untouchable beauty, Vada Long, and--Vada with her dreams about Loren. The supremacy of shyness in their un-relationship between practices and games, combines with depression induced by having a female coach, to form a wildly original, wildly entertaining story-- by the controversial author who has a game-winning field goal here.
