KIRKUS REVIEW

Thoroughly English, but an interesting approach to picturing English school life, and an English child's reactions to American life. Twins, Hugh and Nancy, are separated by the death of their parents, and each one keeps a record of the events of the year they live apart, -- Hugh in uncongenial surroundings, coming face to face with types outside his ken, and eventually getting into a choir school; Nancy, in America, finding a New England public school a challenge. Hugh emerges as a bit of a snob and prig; Nancy as quite a human young person, thoroughly lovable.
