This was a sweet girls book from the s that I got for my birthday from Image Cascade. Although it never covered any deep topics, it was quite outdated, and the plot was typical and not very creative, I still really enjoyed this book. I found the characters to be fun and well-rounded.

The setting was interesting and unique for a s book like this. Although I think there were too many characters it was hard to keep all of Penny's friends straight , I could remember the main characters and the Parrish family easily. This was a sweet story. I would definitely like to read the next book in the series. Feb 15, Alexandra rated it it was ok Shelves: young-adult. Honestly, I look at the 4.

I read a lot of YA - and a lot of vintage YA, mostly courtesy of my mother, who is loaning me this series and was born the year this book came out And I'll read a couple more, at least, to see if they get better.

And all the situations are so saccharine with perfect endings. View 1 comment. Jun 06, Kari rated it it was ok. I read this a while ago Oh, the memories! I read every book Janet Lambert wrote in my early teens and just loved them so much.
It all began with the Scholastic paperback book club edition of this book I can't even remember how many times I read this one other than to note that the paperback was falling apart at some point. I discovered that all the Lambert books are now available in Kindle editions so I splurged and got them all. Now to re-read these lovely nostalgic classics.
This is the first of the Penny Parrish s Oh, the memories! This is the first of the Penny Parrish series. Penny is returning home to a military base in Kansas with her new friend, Carrol Houghton, who is spending the last month of summer with her. Penny is funny, kind, and energetic teenager and her family is upbeat and loving. Major David Parrish and his wife Marjory are just as in love as they were when they were young, even after four kids David, Penny, Bobby, and Tippy and a life moving about as a military family. Carrol fits in immediately even though she is initially shy and somewhat reserved having been raised by her grandmother after her mother's death while her father is distant and really doesn't know his daughter at all.
