Got through all the others and worked my around to er standalones I was a bit older Although one of my very favorite things about body of young adult work is that there are so many connections between them And while AND BOTH WERE YOUNG is probably one of the most standalone of them all for the discerning reader there is a very lovely very obliue reference to its main character in L Engle s much later novel A Severed Wasp Interestingly I don t think I ever realized just ow old this book is Originally published in 1949 it was actually er first young adult novel Incidentally my copy features the old 1983 cover But a lovely new Nehru's India Select Speeches hardback edition was just released on Tuesday and as it is one of my very favorite of L Engle s books I wanted toighlight it El poder de Lady Wifi!

free download And Both Were YoungCh was one of the things that
fascinated me whenme when read it as a public school student growing up in Boise Idaho A Swiss boarding school seemed like one of the most exotic interesting things ever and I frankly envied Philippa for what I perceived as a wonderful opportunityThis time around I enjoyed the fact that Flip was obviously an introvert and I was interested in ow L Engle approached Kiss That Frog her introversion Being an introvert in a boarding school would be tough it s not a place where solitude is easily accessed Being an introvert myself I felt for Flip and understooder The Seneca Scourge hunger to spend time alone and didn t like the way the various characters approacheder need for uiet No one really seemed to understand much less respect the fact that a young woman might need to spend time alone to recharge Caleo Leech her batteries This rings really true even today Flip didn t alwaysandle Vibrational Medicine The herself well buter peers also really didn t understand Kade (Alien Adoption Agency her and they seemed to expect that she would change to suit their expectations rather than suiting their expectations toer character which was frustratingThe romance is extremely chaste with some mild kissing between Flip and Paul I also grew up skiing which might Scandalous Acts 7 have been another reason that this book made such an impression on me as a young woman since a ski meet represented a major plot point in the book There is apparently an updated edition of the book which restored some of L Engle s original manuscript whichad been cut by The Children Money Can Buy her publishers because it either referenced death or was sexually suggestive Set in Europe in 1946 many of the various characters are dealing with the aftermath of WWII and the Jewish genocide More than one characteras family that was murdered in the concentration camps It is sort of astonishing to me that given the time and the subject matter it was considered appropriate to sanitize that topic And The Burning Girls having read it I can t actually imagineow the words sexually suggestive could ve been applied to this book All of the adult characters appear to be celibate and Paul and Flip share a couple of kissesI don t think it as worn uite as well as some of L Engle s other work but I still enjoyed it Philippa Hunter apparently makes a cameo appearance in one of the later works A Severed Wasp published in 1983 And Both Were Young is good as boarding school stories go and as a sweet uiet romance but I don t think the part of the plot which Transgalactic Antics Carrie Hatchett Space Adventurer has to do with Paul sistory works very well with the rest of it I mean the wartime amnesia thing is fine and interesting but not the mysterious stranger part Anyway I do like the convincing way in which Flip grows from shyness to confidence during the course of the book and of course I pretty much always like boarding school stories This was apparently uite daring when it was originally published in the 1940s so much that it Outmove (Inner Movement, had to be bowdlerized But it seems awfully tame to me I read the original non bowdlerized version and find myself wondering just what they felt they needed to cut out The whole mysterious stranger lurking around subplot seemed pretty truncated to meNevertheless this was a good book It does a good job portraying the claustrophobic almost incestuous boarding school atmosphere I wouldave HATED it and it s also interesting to see Philippa mature from a painfully shy sulky and rather whiny girl to a stronger independent and mature person as the months go on And all the topical stuff of the
post war period was well integrated into the story I think this may ave been thewar period was well integrated into the story I think this may ave been the Madeleine L Engle book I read for the first time as a teenager And for some reason it Wildflower An Extraordinary Life and Untimely Death in Africa holds a sort of distinction in myead because of that fact I like most other readers I know who love The Elixir and the Stone her books got in on the whole thing with A Wrinkle in Time moving on to the other Murry and O Keefe family books and then the Austin family series and so on from there I mustave been somewhere around ten or so when I first read the Time series and by the time T from the others sketching or wandering in the mountainsBut the day she's out walking alone and meets a French boy Paul things change for Flip As their relationship grows so does Ancient Agriculture: From Foraging to Farming (Ancient Technology) her self confidence Despiteer newfound appiness there are times .
