AND BOTH WERE YOUNG by Madeleine L'Engle

AND BOTH WERE YOUNG

KIRKUS REVIEW

A Swiss boarding school story with an authentic ring, and the heroine an American girl, thrust into the school unwillingly, and learning to love it. The strict German fraulein, the understanding French art teacher, the girls of different nationalities, the forbidden friendship with the headmistress' nephew, all provide a varied pattern for a well-written story. Occasional emotional abysses provide a touch of melodrama- and romance finds its place happily when "Flip's" widowed father falls in love with the art teacher. To many girls the setting will be fascinating -- and the boarding school background is usually a popular one (only too hard to find today).
