KIRKUS REVIEW

This happy little story about the enterprising struggles of two teen-age sisters to earn enough money to pay taxes on their beloved country home in New England has all the ingredients that teen age girls like in this sort of confection -- likeable young people, bubbling banter, a suggestion of romance, some hints for money-making and a starry-eyed ending with horizons unlimited. Thistle, about to enter college, her sister Patricia, Tony, an engaging boy who works in the summer at the girls' country home, Aunt Cora, older brother Craig, and even Sally, Craig's girl friend who turns out to be a ""good kid"" after all, aid in the money drive. Thistle learns to tie fishing flies, and with Tony's promotion work begins a lucrative business, earning money and getting some valuable publicity. Patricia works in a biological laboratory, and with the help of their friends the girls save the farm. Frothy but fun.
