Excerpt

lamation, the sound of hasty steps, the turning of a key in the lock, and the door was flung open. Facing them stood a young woman no taller than Anne, whose heavy eyebrows met in a straight line, and who looked ready for battle at the first word.

Grace's clear-cut face flushed. "I think we are talking at cross purposes," she said quietly. "The room you are using belongs to my friend Anne Pierson and to me. During our freshman year it was ours, and when we left here last June it was with the understanding that we should have it again on our return to Overton."

****.

Grace and her galpals settle in, helping less fortunate students. Anne's career as an actress takes off! This book follows the same format as the others, with a slight difference. Modern life is beginning to creep up on the author as the "roaring twenties" approach. Attitudes toward acting, slang, women's rights, and social equality are beginning to change and it shows in the author's writing.
