"Meet the Sterling family. . . Mama’s expecting another child, Bron can’t decide which of her suitors to marry, Ben is playing hookey from school, Marnie prefers climbing trees to being a lady, the youngest two are forever getting into mischief, Pa is trying his best to hold his brood together; and Tish, the sensitive one who’s fourteen and somewhere between girl and woman, is writing it all down in her Keeping Days journal. The time is 1900 and the place is Yonkers, New York, but the feelings which blossom in Tish Sterling during her 14th year are the feelings of every young woman."
