LOVE CAN SAY NO by Lillian Pohlmann


Email this review


Dillian Pohlmann has heretofore written for a younger age group and while her skills have perhaps not been upgraded (her dialogue is just so-so) this is still a readable romance with a valid message which will not stick in the craw of any youngster. Jennet's parents are divorced and the effect of split level living has made her as uncomfortable to handle as Brillo- She's defensive with everybody, her marks are slipping, and she toys with the idea of eloping with Danny, who is also somewhat truculent. Then she goes to stay with her father's new family-- including two youngsters her own age. Danny doesn't write. And, she absorbs (from her stepmother) that giving in (to Danny) doesn't prove the problem out... If you need sensible teen-age fiction, say yes.
