Baby Sister

Another Marilyn Sachs title, from 1986. Didn't age as well as the others, but enjoyed an odd popularity a few years ago. Yes, people actually did make their own clothes, and girls did wear dresses. A lot. This was a fairly interesting read about a teenage girl living in the shadow of a dynamic older sister, but the fact that it ended with her happily planning a wedding to sister's exboyfriend somehow is just disturbing 21 years later. Good thing the mother is empowered and goes back to work.

Things have changed, haven't they?
