This is a book from my youth. I have been trying to remember the title for a long time. The other day it just popped in my head and I found it on PBS. I am looking forward to re-reading it again

Recommends it for: 8th grade girls.
If I could get a list of all the books I checked out of my middle school's library when I was in 8th grade, this one would appear over and over again. It was easy to find because the way the spine was printed, it looked like the name of the book was "Please Don't Go Peggy Woodford."

I laughed, I cried, I longed for the passionate feelings of the main characters. A great book.
This was recommended by someone for an EFL class I'll be teaching on illness and health. For most of the story I wondered about the relevance, interesting and accessible for EFL students as it is. The relevance becomes apparent in the last two chapters. On the fence as to whether I'll use it or not - I suppose it will depend on the class. I enjoyed the scenes of France, as they were quite familiar to me. Glad of the recommendation, as it may well serve at a later date.
Hardcover, ex-library book,
Another all time favorite. MAybe because I was an exchange student but I read this in 8th grade and never forgot it. I loaned it to a friend way back then and never got it back. A couple of years ago I tracked a copy down and reread it. A great teen age read. It was out of print for a long time but looks like someone picked it up again this year! YEAH!
