    I don t normally give out five star ratings and this one is really givenout of nostalgia than anything else It s what my 12 year old self would have rated this book back in the day so on this day, I feel I must listen to her heart I used to love this book back when I was 11 or 12 years old I checked it out from my school library multiple times so I could read it over and over and over again It stuck with me and over the years I would occasionally look to see if I could find it and rea I don t normally give out five star ratings and this one is really givenout of nostalgia than anything else It s what my 12 year old self would have rated this book back in the day so on this day, I feel I must listen to her heart I used to love this book back when I was 11 or 12 years old I checked it out from my school library multiple times so I could read it over and over and over again It stuck with me and over the years I would occasionally look to see if I could find it and read it again Unfortunately, it had been out of print for a long time, originally published in the 50s and already several decades old when I read it as a girl, and existing copies were very expensive Recently though I was remembering it again, looked it up and found to my delight that they had finally issued a reprint My opinions of it are certainly different now both as an adult and a mother now myself but for a brief time I was back in my own childhood again as I read about how 14 year old Sue Stevens life is turned on its side the night she attends her school s Peppermint Prom and Dave Young, the coolest boy in junior high, asks her to dance The book is definitely a product of the 50s with some of its mindset girls don t call boys because it cheapens them, lol , but it was a nice trip down memory lane.I m going to give it to my 11 year old daughter to read now, see what she thinks of it Though it has a new cover, I rather prefer the old one It speriod appropriate

    I cannot believe it, I found a copy within our library system and they got it in for me I rushed over to pick it up and it was really it With the prices I have seen this book selling for, I am SO tempted to keep it say I lost it but I can t bear the thought that no one else could share in its wonderful timeless story I feel like I have the Holy Grail in my possesion I read this in the 6th grade and have never forgotten about it.

    I must have read this 100 times when I was 10 12 years old I just found a rare library copy of it complete with the gorgeous dust cover onand treated myself to it The book smell alone was worth the price It was as good as I remembered it to beI learned as much about my own growth as I did Sue s.

    Anne Alexander came to my elementary school and read excerpts from her novel I was so excited A real author In my family we worshiped writers I was allowed to buy a copy of the book, and she autographed it for me I wish I still had it.I loved the story about girls and boys and popularity and things like dating All exciting things to come for a pre teen I don t remember it being rife with teenaged angst at all.

    My Aunt Leisa told me that this out of print book had been a favorite book of hers in her youth The ratings and reviews suggest that she isn t alone in recalling the book fondly I thought I d purchase the book for her as a gift until I found that used copies are several hundred dollars But I just secured a copy to read through inter library loan hurray

    I read and re read this book a few times in Jr High, always checked out from the library A year or so ago, I went looking for it, wondering if it held up after all these years of nostalgia I went towhere I found that it was out of print, although used copies were available for 200 800 WHAT There were also reviews and comments all saying the same thing treasured book, read over and over, if only they could get their hands on a copy Lo and behold, a paperback kindle edition w I read and re read this book a few times in Jr High, always checked out from the library A year or so ago, I went looking for it, wondering if it held up after all these years of nostalgia I went towhere I found that it was out of print, although used copies were available for 200 800 WHAT There were also reviews and comments all saying the same thing treasured book, read over and over, if only they could get their hands on a copy Lo and behold, a paperback kindle edition were released this year, so I grabbed mine and read it Did it hold up Well, it was written and set in 1951, was a bit archaic and overly simplistic, but certain parts got me in the gut, and I ll be damned if it wasn t the precursor for Mean Girls For that alone I gave it 4 stars and then the pink dress, itself what girl hasn t felt transformed by a really special outfit Now what I really want to know is did Tina Fey read The Pink Dress when she was in middle school Hmmmmm inquiring minds
