Flip doesn't think shell ever fit in at the Swiss boarding school.  Besides being homesick for her father and Connecticut, she isn't sophisticated like the other girls, and discussions about boys leave her tongue-tied.  Her happiest times are spent apart from the others, sketching or wandering in the mountains. But the day she's out walking alone and meets a French boy, Paul, things change for Flip.  As their relationship grows, so does her self-confidence.  Despite her newfound happiness, there are times when Paul seems a stranger to her.  And since dating is forbidden except to seniors, their romance must remain a secret.  With so many new feelings and obstacles to overcome in her present, can Flip help Paul to confront his troubled past and find a future?

It was all right. A nice story, with a happy ending, and some good life lessons, such as learning not to feel sorry for yourself. I recommend it for younger teenagers.

Good book about fitting in, friendship, and family.

I love this book. The descriptions of the mountains and trees were magnificent. This book has limited romantic gestures because it was published in 1949, however, the ones that are present are splendid on their own.
