Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7-9-Hulbert "Hubbo" O'Driscoll is a teenaged golf caddy about to start high school. Things are going from bad to worse as he finds true love in the form of Fleurette Featherstone Fitchell and true hate in the form of the elitist Hi-Y club. Life looks fairly grim for this lad, his friends, and his guardian, Mrs. O'Driscoll, but the fortunes are smiling on this hapless orphan, and he is canny enough to nod his head and smile right back. The story takes place in post-World War II Canada where society cruelly draws the lines between rich and poor. Doyle's writing takes star billing in this perfectly crafted, rollicking read. The narrative is colorful, with some delightfully comic moments, and the story and language are completely accessible to teens. The character list at the end with brief Hubboized synopses is a fun way to wrap up this great rags-to-riches tale with a surprising twist at the end.-Lisa Denton, J. S. Russell JHS, Lawrenceville, VA
