Just to be clear, I love Madeleine L'Engle's storytelling, ever since she swept me off my feet with A Wrinkle in Time. I think this YA novel deals with the questions of growing up and discovering the humanity of oneself and one's parents and one's peers is very well done. It was written in either 1951 or 1955 (Wikipedia vs. author website), and considering it is nearly 70 years old it has aged very well. Some attitudes are slightly dated, but the questions and emotions of young people on the cusp of adulthood are still relevant. I like the fact that the ending isn't all wrapped up in a bow, because that's not how life generally is. The character of Frank is abrasive, as is his sister, and Camilla sometimes lacked agency, but honestly that's how people are. A mass of contradictions and good and bad points. Overall I enjoyed re-reading this, which is more than I can say for The Catcher in the Rye. ( )

Camilla is a good read even if I hate the ending. I was never sure it had ended wrong until I read A House Like a Lotus and that book proved that Camilla did not end up with Frank, how annoying. ( )

I read this book for the first time when I was about 13 years old. I loved it then. I discovered it again recently, and the story is just as compelling to me now, and I am over 60.
Camilla's relationships are complicated and the author draws us a picture of what life is like for her, dealing with people who are not happy.
I am very glad that I found this book again. ( )

This is told in the first person from the point of view of a fifteen-year-old teenage girl who lives in New York. Camilla has been quite sheltered from adult problems, but we meet her when she starts to realise that her parents may be fallible, and that she is no longer a little girl...

Essentially it’s a coming-of-age story, about teenage worries, and first love. It feels quite modern in the way it discusses relationships and marriage problems, despite being written in 1965. There is a moving subplot about a young man with a serious disability after being in the war, and many references to astronomy and the idea of God. These are not preachy in any way, but from the point of view of two teenagers trying to decide what they believe, and why, with some unusual theories.

The descriptive and narrative writing is good, and I thought the insights into a teenage mind felt realistic. However I found the dialogue a bit stilted, and the story sometimes a little slow-moving. I found the ending inconclusive, and a little depressing.

Still, it was a pleasant read that could be of interest to younger teens as well as nostalgic adults. ( )

I read this book many years ago, but recently decided to read it again. It has a lot of great descriptions and realistic characters and it covers some deep subjects, but sometimes it seemed a bit overdramatic. ( )
