KIRKUS REVIEW

Better than average career fiction that trumps up the greeting card business-amazingly enough- but it's not as silly as it sounds. Glenna Holbrook is prevented from going to college at the last minute when her father's grocery business suffers from embezzlement and the family is forced to take in boarders. One of them, Miss Brick, turns out to be the gold one of Glenna's future. She's a wheel in the local Warwick Publishing Co. and gets Glenna a job after business school. From then on, Glenna gets better and better at thinking up slogans and new ideas. It's but a short step to a trip to the main office in New York in preparation for a non-secretarial position back home. Romance with a boy from a nearby college, the financial mending of the grocery, fill the gaps in the story with not a little human understanding and zest for living.
