Friday is our day to indulge in fiction choices. Again, we need to reiterate that fiction is really a function of your community’s taste and space issues. Cherry Ames is right up there with Nancy Drew and the gang. Cherry was getting dated for my age group and really belongs to the previous generation. (I bet my mother read about Cherry.) Yes, this book belongs in any good popular culture archive. It is not a good choice for a contemporary youth collection with limited space. For those of you who really think a modern youth collection needs Cherry, they have newer editions, so no hanging on to moldy, old stuff!
