Recommends it for: teenage girls ages 12 and up
I read this as a young teen and I really liked it. It is an early 60's teen novel that has nothing bad in it. The main character in the book is mainly concerned that she is not allowed to wear make up while she is living with her relatives in England. I like reading about a different time where even the rules of dating were a little different. A fun book to read.
My mom read it... she ended up going to england and this book inspired her to do it...
I read it... and now I REALLY want to be english....
