This story has proved to be appealing and enjoyable to the generation who lived through the 50's and also to younger people who have dealt with issues of becoming of age. It is a fun, fast, and thought provoking read.

I really enjoyed this trek down memory lane, the time frame may be different... but Parochial School must never change! It was fun reading about the experiences of a diverse group of high school students, their trials and tribulations, their struggles with morals, dating, and first jobs. This was a well written story, and came with full closure. I'm glad for the opportunity to read something a bit different and quite entertaining!
