KIRKUS REVIEW

A very welcome change this, -- a simple, refreshing and unstandardized bit of nothing about a very young girl in the old and jaded world of Hollywood. For rentals largely, with this background, but all in all an appealing little story, and one which branch libraries should be able to use for ""light romance"" shelves. Sherry Lynne is an innocent of seventeen who goes to Hollywood to write, and who has her first taste of worldly expediency when her roommate decides to acquire luxury in the one way that presents itself, and runs off with a married man. Next door are the boys, three of them, who have ""adopted"" Sherry to protect her, -- a French boy, a Viennese and a Danish boy. There are some rocky roads, with some missteps, before it all straightens out, but the ending is the right one for all concerned.
