In The High School Girls Series, Grace attends Oakdale High School with friends Anne Pierson, Nora O'Malley, and Jessica Bright.

The group becomes friends with boys in their acquaintance: David Nesbit, Tom Gray, Hippy Wingate, and Reddy Brooks, forming "The Eight Originals." In 'Grace Harlowe's Return to Overton Campus' Grace returns to Overton after her graduation in order to manage Harlowe House - A new house 'to be dedicated to the use of those girls who were making a struggle to acquire a college education' (Summary by Wikipedia/ashleighjane) (5 hr 14 min)

Reviews

Enjoyable


(3.5 stars)

This book appears to be #5 in the College series of 7. They remain an example of simple life if lived with integrity. True that author isn't wildly known for striking depth, but each can provide an example for the young & young at heart.
