DOUBLE DATE by Rosamond du Jardin

Definitely superior to her earlier books (Seventeen Class Ring etc.) in the penetration of the emotional problems of the upper teens. There's an unusual set-up here but one which will strike home in many a family where the problem may be sisters (not necessarily twins -- as in this case), one of whom is confident, assured, popular with the boys, the other one, insecure and reserved. The usual round of High School doings, extra-curricular for the most part; one questionable issue, which is left unsolved; and contest for the affections of one particular boy- these are the main ingredients that add up to a readable, if not profound, book which should widen the horizons of the Janet Lambert -- Betty Cavannah addicts.
