Forty-year-old actress Justin Stokes recalls the summer she turned fourteen and her relationship with Ursula DeVane, the older woman who made that summer memorable. Reader's Guide included. Reissue.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Justin Stokes would never forget the summer she turned fourteen, nor the woman who transformed her bleak adolescent life into a wondrous place of brilliant color. In the little pondside hut also known as the “finishing school,” eccentric, free-spirited Ursula DeVane opened up a world full of magical possibilities for Justin, teaching her valuable lessons of love and loyalty, and encouraging her to change, to learn, to grow. But the lessons of the finishing school have their dark side as well, as Justin learns how deep friendship can be shattered by shocking, unforgivable betrayal.
