KIRKUS REVIEW

A healthy sophomore year centers around the activities of young Midge Bennett whose mother goes to work to give her daughter the chance to go to her own alma mater. And honest, forthright Midge, whose glamourous and rather snobbish sister Adele, is a frestman at nearby Conway College, is soon thrown into a welter of school and social activities. Almost immediately (though we don't know why this should happen to a new girl) she is elected Student Council president. Then there are dates- and scrapes-with the boys Adele knows, and a few lessons for her from Midge on being a more natural person. At the end of a full year (and in an incident taken from a scene in Marjorie Paradis' One Act Plays for All Girl Casts published last year) Midge is awarded an important scholarship that will finance two more years at Duncan. Upright if unacademic.
