About the Book

From poor lonely orphan to sophisticated young woman — Jerusha Abbott can hardly believe her good fortune.

All her life Jerusha has lived at the drearyJohn Grier Home for orphans. Now that she's seventeen, her time there is up and her prospects for the future are dim. But suddenly an anonymous benefactor sends her to a posh northerstern college for women. All Jerusha must do in return is write to the man she nicknames Daddy-Long-Legs and tell him of her progress.

And what progress there is! Jerusha — now Judy because she has always hated her name — reads everything from Mother Goose to Plato, joins the basketball team, buys her first pair of stockings, writes a novel, wins a scholarship, lives with two roomates who couldn't be more different; and, for the first time in her life, falls in love.
