    • I love GLH and this book was delightful. Effie made a bit of a different heroin from her normal ones, but shes now one of my favorites. Effie has real problems. Not nice clean ones that authors typically want to deal with. This girl has problems with laziness, and being to impetuous. She cares nothing for what anyone thinks. GLH tackled these problems that may seem small, but to Effie (and myself) they are very big. The whole development of Effie's character was beautiful. I loved it!!And the en [...]



    • Effie Martin doesn't belong - a fact that's made perfectly clear by every last person around her. This is a story that made me wince more than a little - the harshness of non-conformity is painful to watch. The world wants Effie to fit in - and then she meets a boy who likes her as she is. Mostly.I like how Effie takes a long hard look at herself, and tries hard to grow up and do the right thing. But it's hard to watch because I know that I have been that person in the past (and still am, who am [...]


    • About this book:“Effie Martin was humiliated! Lawrence Earle, the football hero, was coming back from college, and all the girls were planning a big picnic for him. She had been planning to go, too--until she overheard the girls saying they didn't want her along because she was too rough, too much of a tomboy. Well, she'd show them. She could be as much a lady as any of them!Or could she? Almost immediately Effie found herself caught in a struggle between "acting ladylike" and being herself--a [...]


    • A fine book by Hill. My biggest beef is with the publishers! Reprints from the '60s show tacky "flower-child" cover illustrations and these republications from the '80s show a badly researched attempt to vaguely suggest a time in the past while I guess still looking up-to-date. I wish they would use an illustration that pictures the characters looking as they are described in the story - from 1928! Anyway, cute story about a tomboyish girl who grows up into strong feminine loveliness. The book g [...]


    • A classic tale. A young girl overhears someone talking about her and changes her entire life, with a little help from God. A bit unrealistic, but a feel good story.


    • This was a short read of a classic , old timely author. The growth of the main character for such a short piece was very satisfying.


    • Increased my rating after reading the second time. The message of letting God change a person's life is so powerful.
