KIRKUS REVIEW

High School ahead- and does any adult know about those quivery scary feelings of uncertainty? What will it be like? Here is someone who does know, and has charted the course in direct, unsentimental fashion. When you know what it is like to have a home room and different teachers in different rooms for different subjects; when you know that a lot more is expected of you, that study hours are not for play, that home work is extra- and important; when you know that marks count- towards college, towards a vocation, from the very start- but that outside activities count too; when you know what it will be like to meet lots of new people and to be on your own in making friends- when you know, it won't all be so terrifying. Mrs. Scott discusses too some of the personal problems, problems of shyness, of inadequacy, of insecurity about clothes and personal appearance. And it all adds up to a very useful handbook- IF only you can persuade the junior high students to have a look at it. More material here for girls than boys- but enough for both.
