"How to Keep Pace With Your Daughter"
"One day she is a sandal-shod schoolgirl, full of adolescent enthusiasms and given to giggling; the next she is a young woman with a highly-developed dress-sense and an assured and instinctive understanding of make-up it has taken you half a life-time to acquire. It is hardly surprising that you sometimes gaze at your daughter of yours in goggle-eyed wonder!"

"Ethelind Fearon has brilliantly mingled fun and frolics with bags of sound commonsence"
