The series that began with the beloved Star Spangled Summer has continued, and the heroine is now Tippy, Penny's little sister, a pretty and thoughtful teenager, about seventeen years old. Colonel Parrish has been stationed in Germany, dealing with post-war military issues, and his wife and Tippy come to join him. Tippy lacks Penny's burning ambition (to go on stage) but is much more sensitive and she worries about the defeated Germans and the generally depressing atmosphere (at one point she st [...]
The Parrish-Jordan series written by Janet Lambert is a look backward into history. The books were written during or just after World War II. Yes, they're dated, but that is part of their charm. If I had read these in an earlier time I would probably have given them 5 stars. They aren't any less good but it's just that today there are books that are so over the top that I can't compare these rather quiet little missives with them. I found this book especially interesting. The War is over. Colone [...]
This is a much more serious book than many of the others as Tippy and her mother head off to join her father in Germany.

What will life be like in war torn Germany? How will Tippy stay her happy bubbly self after seeing such pain and suffering?
Ok, so it took me over a month to read this short little book. The bottom line is that I'm just not a big Tippy fan. I wasn't that much into Penny either, but Carol made up for that series. I'm having a hard time finishing these. But I have so many checked out from libraries across the state, and they are so old and decrepit that I know they will take them out of circulation as soon as I return them. So, it's now or never.One scene in this book that got my dander up, is when Ken is trying to con [...]

Behind her cheery, extrovert ways she is a sensitive girl who worries about bigger issues in the life than her own social whirl but finds her feelings difficult to express. She finds a friend in a handsome officer, a longtime friend of the family, who tries to cheer her . . . and unintentionally adds more complications to her life.This vivid picture of post-war Germa [...]
