" How could I have not read this when I was younger, like I did Jean and Johnny, Fifteen, The Luckiest Girl...but then again, I am not sure I would have enjoyed it then as much as I did now. " said.

" I forget how much I like Beverly Clearly! I used to read these as a kid. " said.

" This book was so cute! I love reading these stories about how life was back then. " said.

" Wouldn't really recommend for a modern read- the father constantly marginalizes his wife and daughters, and this is portrayed as normal and healthy. Education for women is not portrayed as very important. It is an entertaining read, but it doesn't have a lot to offer a teen today. " said.

" Loved it. Beverly Cleary is a favorite author of mine and this book did not disappoint. Her books are a bit dated (this one was written 55 years ago), but her characters are so endearing and human nature has not changed. She keenly understood the universal (and timeless) angsts and concerns of young people. She still manages to capture my attention and imagination in a way that few authors do. " said.

" How strange it must have been to be a teenager in the 60's. Women were becoming more emancipated but there was still a lot of "women's work". I feel sorry for Rosemary being bent into the roll of wife because she is in love so young. I'm glad I finally read this book but I think it no longer YA but JF. " said.

" What's a girl to do when her sister announces she's getting married in a matter of weeks, and suddenly you're "just" the sister of the bride? A fun look at both wedding insanity and the trials and tribulations of being 16 to your sister's bridal glory, Barbara has many universal struggles and thoughts - girls of all ages can relate, and those of us far beyond HS can rejoice we're not still dealing with that *and* the questions, ha. " said.

" I wasn't a fan of the topic in this story. It felt very outdated and not in a cute, watching Leave it to Beaver, nostalgia way. The obsession with getting married and being a good wife was kinda weird and especially since these books were aimed at teens. This one wasn't the cute feel good love story I had wanted, unfortunately. I didn't hate it and there were some lovely moments in the story but I also wouldn't recommend this one either. " said.
