Setting: high school in Connecticut. Characters: six teenagers keeping diaries for an English assignment. Theme: the pressures imposed by family and peer group, and the value of friendship. Jennie, best at everything, is endlessly praised by tactless teachers and proud parents until she cracks under the strain of always having to succeed; fanciable Paul has a family which everyone wants to discover. An undemanding, warm-hearted read for teenage girls.
