চূড়ান্ত পাঠ্য + Chen Amo Amo থেকে নিউ ইয়র্ক
This was probably the first American boarding school book I ever read. It was not in my hometown library, but during summer vacations with my grandparents, I would borrow it from the Cathedral City, CA library. Vicky and Martha have some wonderful experiences (I still want to be a pistachio ice cream cone for Halloween, for instance), but Nordstrom's wistful tone lingers throughout the book. It's a sophisticated touch that helps to show why Nordstrom was such a talented editor of books that pushed the envelope. Best friends and nice housemothers are great, but they can't replace HOME.
