Following her sister's wedding, 16-year-old Elizabeth [protagonist of River at Her Feet] expected a dramatic change in her own life. When a 23-year-old celebrity visited a neighbor, Elizabeth interpreted his casual friendship as love. The familiar plot, contrived setting, and breezy style make Elizabeth's ensuing anguish unconvincing. (pp. 83-4)
