This book pairs with Cress Delahanty by Jessamyn West, as the two best coming of age novels about sensitive, intelligent literary girls in the last half of the 1900s. As an awkward, unlovely high schooler in 1970 to 74, I longed to have friends like Julie and Cress and a life that was so rich with emotional growth. I think a few girls today might feel the same way and take comfort and hope from these books.
