Grace Harlowe's Plebe Year at High School

by Jessie Graham Flower

Beautiful Victorian book for decent young ladies. The heroine, Grace Harlowe, and her friends, all of the highest moral character, have to deal with mean teachers, meaner students, and the evil upperclassmen. In the modern days of metal detectors and locker searches, this book really brings back the meaning of "those were the good old days". Read the rest of the series, too!

Grace Harlowe's Sophomore Year at High School

by Jessie Graham Flower

Second in the Grace Harlowe series. A pleasant, easy story, set in America during the Victorian era. Grace and her friends, now sophomores, become school leaders and defeat their nemesis on the basketball court. Happy endings for all. All one can say is, times sure were different then!

Grace Harlowe's Junior Year at High School

by Jessie Graham Flower

Victorian girls apparently joined sororities, not gangs, in high school. Problems were solved by silence and good manners, not by insults and catfighting. Some of the conflict solving seems unrealistic, but those were different times back then. The characters are great. One starts to notice a trend in the series, as each book has an antagonist Grace must foil or befriend, and each book has the obligatory "Grace in danger" scene. Still, a good book in a good series.

Grace Harlowe's Senior Year at High School

by Jessie Graham Flower

Grace Harlowe's senior year was nothing like yours or mine, believe me! No senior skip day, no spirit week, no homecoming, no prom--- no teenage angst! Her homeboys have already left for college, so she and the girls have to follow the standard "fix relationships" and "Grace in danger" plots by themselves. One notices certain romances beginning to blossom, but this is the Victorian age! -and there shall be no handholding here, thank you. Ah, for the days when children could love without pressure or without being called "gays".
