Good-by Betsy...

Hello, Betsye

Betsy Ray is now a sophomore, and she and her Crowd are in the thick of things at Deep Valley High. Between parties, exams, and her duties as class secretary, Betsy's got her hands full. But she's not too busy to notice the new boy in town — the oh-so-cosmopolitan Phil Brandish. If only she could make him notice her!

Then Betsy's old friend Tib Muller invites her to spend Christmas in Milwaukee. It's there that plain old Betsy begins her, transformation into the dramatic and mysterious Betsye.With her new identity, she's sure she'll be able to charm Phil. The question is, can Betsye help being Betsy — in spite of herself?

Synopsis:

Celebrate the 60th anniversary of the beloved "Betsy-Tacy" series with this repackaged paperback edition, featuring an all-new biographical section of historical information and photographs and a Foreword by Anna Quindlen. In this title, Betsy Ray is now a bored sophomore who sets out to transform her identity.

Reina, February 26, 2007 (view all comments by Reina)
I discovered the Betsy books in middle school and have been collecting and rereading them since. The Betsy-Tacy books are for younger readers, while the high school years will delight readers from middle school on. The high school years (and beyond) starts with Heaven to Betsy and chronicles Betsy Ray and her crowd's parties, studying, dating, and family life in early twentieth century Minnesota. The charming illustrations give added dimension to the books, all of which are charming and entertaining. I loved these books so much that when I went across country many years ago, I visited Mankato, which is the real life Deep Valley, along with Plum Creek, of Laura Ingalls Wilder fame. These are on par with the Little House books.
