Abstract:

"Susie has spunk. A fighting tomboy, her story opens with an accidental haircut and it grows up and out into a novel that spans a long, hot summer of incidents which always seem to Susie to start around her sadly shorn head. Take Mildred, for instance. She's supposed to be Susie's best friend, but she takes a malicious pleasure in Susie's hairlessness and insists on games of Rapunzel and even starts a club for long haired girls only. Then, there are Susie's superior older sisters and Aunt Mag, who is always there to gloom-see and doom-say every time Susie is at her worst. It's as hard to stop being a tomboy as it is to grow hair enough to look like a girl. When Susie attended a prissy all-girl party intent on behaving like a perfect lady, she could hardly lick the cake frosting off the gloves she wore all the way through."--Kirkus.
