When I read these as a kid I really didn't care for this book. As an adult I think it may be my favorite of the High School books. The story rings the truest of all of them. As Betsy morphs into Betsye, I felt I could relate. As a teenager I was constantly seeking to change, and to push myself into a person who can only come with actual growing up. What I really enjoyed was how her sister affirmed her attempts, even though they failed horribly. Failure with a purpose.
