JANIE by Josephine Bentham


Email this review


Another candidate for a modern Babs role, -- buoyant, human and very nice, although not as riotously funny as The Youngest Profession. Janie is 16 and Middle West. Refreshing tale of the burgeoning of adolescent love, as Janie, just 16, copes with a humiliatingly and frankly observant 7-year old sister, not too understanding parents, and her two MEN. There's her steady who has always plied her with cokes; there's the son of her mother's best friend. Warm and real and fun reading. Plus sale for girls.
