[nice tight copy, appears unread, no discernible wear to book; jacket show minor wear at extremities, small tear and associated crease at top of spine]. Uncommon novel about a suburban London girl who "has all the makings of an Angry Young Woman [but] unfortunately, she is plagued with that most debilitating of characteristics for a young lady with a mission in life: she has a sense of humour. This affliction, when coupled with her unfailing propensity for doing all the wrong things for all the wrong reasons, cannot fail but produce calamitous results." Bawden's prolific output was divided almost evenly between books for adults and for children. [I was going to call this the "First American Edition," but my research has been unable to turn up any trace of a British edition, rather odd considering the novel's setting and the author's nationality.]
