Philip Hall Likes Me. I Reckon Maybe. - Bette Greene

The word that kept popping into my mind as I read this was: How-did-know-my-failed-love-story-when-I-hadn't-even-been-born-when-this-was-written (okay, so that's not one word but still....)! Just that first story was so powerful that I was sucked in. The grammar and cultural references made the story come alive. The fact that the parents indulged Beth's whims was too adorable and that she learnt some valuable lessons along the way, helped to reduce the angst that her naivette caused.
