"To 17-year-old Jenny MacArthur, life seemed full of difficulties and disappointments that could only be borne because in her secret heart she was deeply in love--for the first time--with Ben Adams, an American exchange student whom her brother John had brought home for a visit. Though Ben had now returned to America and sent only an occasional post card or breezy note, Jenny was not discouraged. The fact that she was falling behind in her studies Jenny blamed on many things. . . . How Jenny gradually faces up to some basic facts of life and slowly gains a measure of self-confidence and a new awareness of herself, her family, and friends is told with sympathy and warmth in this mature novel for young adults. As a May Morning will speak directly to girls everywhere who will find their own doubts, rebellions, hopes, and joys clearly mirrored."
