    One thought on “Green Eyes”

    1. An old favorite. Loved it as a teen (in the late '60's / early '70's) and still do because of its sensitive treatment of a smart girl who has been on the margins but is now learning how to get along with peers. Also because of its treatment of the negative effects of envy/jealousy. Would love to find a good bio of the author, Jean Nielsen.

    2. Written in 1955, this is a story about a high school girl Jan, who is passionate about journalism and her work on the school newspaper, to the exclusion of her social life. It some ways it's heavily stamped by the time period in which it was written. For example, getting interested in clothes and making her appearance more attractive seems to be a big part of the growing-up process. On the other hand, here is a girl who is more focused on developing her talents than worrying about her looks or b [...]

    3. I've read this book so many times. A wonderful tale about a girl who is stubborn, smart and doesn't quite fit in. She finds her nitch and learns to accept herself and others. My daughter recently read it and loved it also.

    4. Classic malt shop plus I always enjoyed books about girls writing for their high school newspaper (not sure why I didn't do this myself although I think my school required that you take journalism as an elective, and it met the same time as Latin).

    5. 1960 was a very long time ago, yet remember being impressed by this book and marking it as my favorite. I am almost positive I read in Green Eyes: Distance lends enchantment, familiarity breeds contempt. It would not be fair for me to rate it a 5 without finding a copy to re-read it now.
