Philadelphia : Lippincott, 1963.
IL 5-8 .
thing I liked about "Drop-out" was that these kids weren't bad kids. Bonny,
the girl, liked school, did well in Latin, but her dad was holding her
back. He wanted her to take typing lessons and office skills so she could
get a job after graduation. Mitch had the opposite problem. He loved cars
and worked part-time as a mechanic, dreaming of the day he could start
full-time. His dad expected him to hold off work until after college. These
two kids get together after she faints in class and he carries her to the
nurse's room. They find that their friendship helps make their family life
bearable but when her step-sister finds out she's dating secretly, her
dad decides to send her to her aunt's. That's when they decide to go off
and elope and that's when the trouble really starts.
