Read in January, 1993

Outstanding novel about a girl who doesn't want to rush off to college just because her friends are all going, so stays home and tries to create a viable place for herself as a high school graduate in her home town, only to find that she is both lonely and unfulfilled.

Cooney's books tend to be either potboilers or books of lasting appeal - this one is memorable.
