Do you ever feel like you are tied up in our times? Worrying too much about cell phones, fashions, and the latest whatever's? This book can set you straight. It gives you a peace of mind and fills you with simple pleasures. Polly Milton is a fourteen-year-old country girl raised on old-fashioned values and invited to Boston for an extended stay with her friend, Fanny Shaw. Quite the unlikely friendship since Fanny, despite being only two years older, is no longer just a girl, not poor, and not old-fashioned. Little does Polly know the breakers which lie ahead: flounces and frizzles and the height of fashion, girls who consider flirtation the true purpose of schooling, and one particularly beastly red-headed boy who insists on plaguing his sister's country friend. Will Polly ever learn to be like the other girls? And does she even want to? A timeless story by the author of beloved favorite „Little Women".
