“The sixteenth year is the hardest, darling. . . . You’re neither fish nor fowl this year. So keep your mind on Art.” But to Lambie Prowder, junior miss with eyeglasses and too frank a nature, Art is not enough to carry her through this summer trip to Mexico. She watches her companions Corney and Horty, each a ripe seventeen, exercising their pink magic,* and comes quickly to the tragic conclusion that she will never learn. Yet her hilarious adventures, beginning with the loss of all her money and then of her glasses, net her in the end an honest big-as-life boy friend, while her glowing companions are still doing up their hair and their faces and casting out their lines for “Somebody New.”--from the jacket.
*Definition: allure; appeal; a spell cast over the Other Sex. [Suggest a different description.]
