Author: Booth Tarkington.
A seventeen-year old young man, William Baxter, becomes infatuated with a young lady by the name of Miss Lola. He must content with fellow lads, an exasperating little sister, and the decrees of his parents – and Miss Lola is only staying for the summer!
Quite well done as a satire, I thought. However, I couldn’t stand either of the main characters, neither Lola with her baby talk and retinue of boys, nor William with his moping and showing off.
Sexual content: None.
Language: 15 ‘Ye Gods’ exclamations, 4 d***, 2 darn, 1 derogatory term
Violence: Second hand story that a suit was worn by a man who cut off a lady’s head.
