And Both Were Young by Madeleine L'Engle

L'Engle, Madeleine And Both Were Young, 238 pgs. Crosswicks, Ltd., 1983. Language - PG (3 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; Flip is going to an all girls boarding school because she can't miss a year of school to travel with her father while he goes to draw real people for a book. On a walk on day, she finds Ariel, a dog, who leads her to find Paul. Paul and Flip become great friends, but what will happen if they finally get caught on one of these meetings that go against the school rules? I really enjoyed this book that shows how hard it can be to fit in and that you need friends to help you through the hard times. Friendship and acceptance are what everyone needs and is looking for. MS, HS - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: CCH
FYI - This is a reprint, with a few differences, of a book originally printed in 1949 -Cindy
