KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a family album reviewed by Peggy, a child of the thirties, who grew up in the war years, with scenes from days at Lake Onaka in western New York. The contrasts between her grandparents, the close family ties, Peggy's own attachment to her older brothers, and the complex of associations with school and college friends make up the background for a ""labyrinth of adolescence"". The author has created a mood and an atmosphere that follows something of a Granny and Zooey pattern and that evokes a sense of people in their time and place, attentively and sensitively. Older teenagers will find it revealing.
