Canby Hall #13 Here Come the Boys and #14 What's a Girl to Do?

In Girls of Canby Hall #13, Here Come the Boys, Canby Hall decides to admit three boys on a trial basis in order to decide whether the school should allow boys to attend.  The three boys stay in Baker House and become close personal friends to Dana, Faith, and Shelley.  The boys apparently have no interest in any other girls at Canby Hall.

The trial run with the boys appears to be successful.  The boys stay at Canby Hall for the duration of Dana, Faith, and Shelley's time at the school.  After all six graduate, the school no longer has any boys.  How very odd but typical of this series.  It's not like anything has to make sense.

I enjoyed this book.

In Girls of Canby Hall #14, What's a Girl to Do?, Dana, Faith, and Shelley volunteer at the hospital as part of a class project.  Faith falls for a young resident doctor, even though he is 10 years older than she is.  Meanwhile, Shelley worries about the tryouts for the spring play while Dana worries that her younger sister, Maggie, might attend Canby Hall next year.

On page 29, Faith says that Pamela "could care less," and on the next page, Pamela herself says that she "couldn't care less."  The incorrect version "could care less" shows up in other books as well.  Apparently not even authors can get it right!  Or at least, the authors for this series couldn't get it right.

I enjoyed this book.
