Picked up during a book exchange.
Published in 1957, and it shows. Great idea--two teachers decide to arrange an exchange trip for the seniors in their small Nebraska town. They'll head to Oregon for a week, and then those kids will come to Nebraska--a chance for the kids to see other parts of the country. The whole town pulls together to come up with the money for the trip, and the trip itself opens many eyes.
And yet. . .I had some serious issues with the characters themselves.

A pleasantly different vintage teen YA. I liked the approach of having three different protagonists, even though there wasn't really space to develop them all as fully as in similar books. Much less of a focus on college / college-preparation in this book compared to the others. I would love to read a sequel about Steena's adventures as a typist in Seattle, and also an accompanying how-to book from Sunny with recipes, housekeeping advice, and sewing patterns.
