A HATBOX FOR MIMI by Marjory Hall


Email this review


To Mimi Spain, the oldest of a family of five girls, the life of a model seems so glamorous as to be beyond reach. But driven by a fierce desire to emancipate herself from the monotonous life of a nursemaid, she organizes her family and sets out to conquer the alluring world. Mimi approaches the career of a model the back way, and obtains a job as a salesgirl, but the back way proves to be a sure way when her good looks are noticed and she begins the tiring and difficult training for the anything-but-glamorous job of displaying fashions. The subject is irresistible to young girls and is described quite accurately here in this otherwise routine romance.
