Jill | 2 comments I read this in 1975-1985 -ish. it was a a new book then. The Paris family did not have much money. The college girl did. She lost weight because they had very small meals at home and she was too intimidated to try to buy food when she was out because she didn't speak French well. I remember that when the mom's friend took the girl clothes shopping because all her clothes had gotten too big, the description was of the sales clerk getting items from behind the counter since at that time you couldn't browse for clothes in Paris stores. She bought a simple stylish navy sweater and navy skirt.
She builds confidence and eventually becomes a magazine editor which I think happened in the sequel.
