Book Excerpt: 
. . .The three regarded her with unbending mien. They were not to be moved by a few tears.

"You said that Rosalie was a silly little goose to make such a fuss over nothing," Priscilla reminded her.

"And at least he was a live man," said Patty, "even if he did have a crooked nose."

"Do you still think she was a silly goose?" Conny inquired.

"N—no!"

"Don't you think you've been a great deal more silly?"

"Y—yes."

"And will you apologize to Rosalie?"

"No!"

"It will make quite a funny story," Patty ruminated, "the way we'll tell it."

"I think you're perfectly horrid!"

"Will you apologize to Rosalie?" Priscilla asked again.

"Yes—if you'll promise not to tell."[62]

"We'll promise on one condition—you're to break your engagement to Cuthbert St. John, and never refer to it again."

Cuthbert sailed for England on the Oceanic the follow. . . Read More

Patty will not let it stand and the girls come up with schemes to go back to rooming with one another. The book follows C...more

Published before her most famous book, Daddy-Long-Legs, and boy does it show. There's no "plot" here, no storyline at all. It's just a bunch of vignettes that seem thrown together. Webster doesn't even bother to tell us what her main characters look like in the first chapter--little by little the...more

This book made me laugh out loud. It's very clean young adult genre. Not really a full plot but almost a collection of short stories. Enjoyed a look at the beginning of the century boarding school life in America.
Jean Webster had a really great sense of humor and sense of understanding.

پتی مثل همیشه فوق العاده بود، گرچه به نظرم کم سن و سال تر شده بود که احتمالاً ناشی از ترجمه ست. همینطور چشممان به جمال جری جوان روشن شد =) به قدری که شک کردم نکند کنستانتینِ جری جوان، همین کانی باشد که عاشق باغ های ایتالیایی ست.
و اما ترجمه، اوایل کتاب فاجعه بود، اما به مرور بهتر و بهتر شد. بارها...more

“Just Patty” is a collection of short stories about Patty and her school friends at boarding school. The first story sets the scene, introducing Patty and her two best friends, as well as the teachers and other pupils who we get to know better in later stories.

I’m an unashamed fan of old-style sc...more

It's a pleasant novelty to read American schoolgirl stories. I kept thinking I was reading Susan Coolidge and wondering when it was going to get didactic. But Jean Webster is a way better writer than Susan Coolidge. Very cute lah! And I enjoyed her sharp observations about charity -- how the char...more
