Über diesen Titel
Fifteen-year-old Karen spends the summer with her unusual Aunt Augusta and learns many things about love, life, and the complexities of growing up.From School Library Journal:
YA Karen Moss, at odds with her parents and brooding over the loss of a boyfriend, spends her fifteenth summer in a small Illinois town with her 35-year-old Aunt Augusta, an eccentric English teacher, compulsive baseball fan, nonstop talker, and the loving caretaker of the family's deteriorating Victorian home. The two women spend the sultry summer engaged in various home improvement projects, driving lessons, baseball games, and endless conversations in which Karen is appalled and awed by tales of her Aunt's love affairs. Karen meets George, who is bright, talented, and lonely. He becomes Karen's summer romance and the focus of much of her preoccupation with love and sex. Although the setting for the novel is the 1950s, Karen's struggle to understand her loving (if less than perfect) parents, her unconventional aunt, her sensitive and troubled boyfriend, and her own unpredictable emotions is a process toward self knowledge that today's readers will understand. Family Resemblances is not as subtle nor as profound as The Finishing School (Viking, 1985), which deals with a similar theme, but most young adults will find it more accessible than Godwin's book.
