Stuck-up neurotypicals!

Ted (tchall) | 1 comments Coming in late... but this is one of my favorite Heinlein YAs.. Got to get my copy back from #2 son.

Sheryl Tribble | 76 comments This is the first Heinlein I ever read that I actively disliked. I thought Podkayne was a ditz, which seemed unfair when this was the only juvenile with a female lead.

To be fair, I thought much the same of Anne Frank when I was a teenager. I had much more sympathy for Anne when I reread The Diary of Anne Frank as an adult, although I can still see why I thought her a ditz, so I had hopes I'd have more tolerance for Podkayne as well.
