Younger teen-agers will enjoy [the experiences of Leeann, protagonist of The High White Wall]. There is nothing particularly original about them but the book is well written and the characterization exceptionally good. Leeann, her family, the children behind the high wall, their parents, and the two young men who bring romance into the story are all real people. The part about the death of Leeann's little sister is very well done. (p. 141)
Jennie D. Lindquist, in a review of "The High White Wall," in The Horn Book Magazine, Vol. XXXIII, No. 2, April, 1957, pp. 140-41.
