The author of Kat John that irrepressible utterly real eleven year old gamin, now treats us to another delightful dip into her life. When we start out, Katie is facing many problems. Her new home in Missouri is filled with bothersome boarders, and at school she is the ""new girl"". Adjustment comes gradually and Katie and her new chum, Sue, take us through some heartwarming and humorous adventures, many of which concern Boys, a budding interest of Katie's. Life at home improves as Katie gains new understanding of her roomers and friendships begin to blossom. A thoroughly engaging book with a refreshingly alive heroine.
