Seventeen: A Tale of Youth and Summer Time and the Baxter Family Especially William is a humorous novel by Booth Tarkington that gently satirizes first love, in the person of a callow 17-year-old, William Sylvanus Baxter. Seventeen takes place in a small city in the Midwestern United States shortly before World War I. It was published as sketches in the Metropolitan Magazine in 1914, and collected in a single volume in 1916, when it was the bestselling novel in the United States.

Reviews

Funny Ha Ha


(5 stars)

Jonathon Burchard has a unique talent for bringing out the humor in Booth Tarkington's books. He's recorded several, but this one is the best, and especially funny to anyone who has ever had teenaged children.

I am a fan of the author, but ... One of the main characters spoke baby talk all of the way through the book. SAVE YOUR TIME!

Wanted to give 5 stars but for some reason it won't let me. Thank you! Great job reading! Tarkington is always a lot of fun!
