FOR A SMALL HARMONICA
York : Harper & Row, 1976.
McAllister is a tomboy who offends a girls' school in New York City. Her
mom sets her up with a psychiatrist who is a slob, her best friend gives
her a harmonica when she usually gives great presents, her poetry teacher
is a man whom she starts out hating and ends up falling in love with. Through
it all, her neighbor introduces her to a movie director who thinks her
unconventional style is adorable. Will the real JF emerge from this confusing
adolescence? In "Tunes for a Small Harmonica", JF raises $1000 to help
send her teacher back to England to finish his Master's thesis. She's a
real likable person who works through a lot in this book.
