New York, NY, U.S.A.: Viking, 1989. First Amercian Edition. Very Good/Very Good. From Publishers Weekly This modern-day fable tells the story of Alison, a girl who has always dreamed of having a fairy godmother to whisk her out of her drab life into a world of elegance and wealth. Alison's wish comes true when she meets Mrs. Considine, a rich and sophisticated older woman who is eager to be her friend. Soon Alison is spending every weekend at Mrs. Considine's luxurious home. There Alison sails, rides and wears clothes that belonged to Mrs. Considine's dead daughter Camilla. Because she looks just like Camilla it is easy for Alison to imagine that she really is Mrs. Considine's daughter, a game that Mrs. Considine also plays. So enchanted is Alison with her new life that she is more than willing to allow Mrs. Considine to obliterate her old self and mold her into the "real" Camilla. At first, Alison and Mrs. Considine seem irritatingly one-dimensional; but as the story progresses, readers will realize that more fully fleshed-out characters would be out of place in this starkly surreal world. The strange story of Alison's transformation will linger long in the reader's mind. Ages 10-14. Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. From School Library Journal Grade 5-9-- This absorbing British import is not a story of the supernatural as the title and cover art imply, but rather a mystery with a serious message. Alison Allbright, dull, drab, unhappy, and unpopular, is the daughter of poor, working-class parents. In her daydreams she is beautiful, rich, and blessed with perfect parents. Through a series of odd coincidences, her life changes. Wealthy Mrs. Considine takes Alison under her wing and introduces her to the good life: servants, lovely... read more 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

ID: 978080207203

With the turn of the century came increased industrialization and urbanization, and in Toronto one of the most visible results of this modernization was the influx of young, single women to the city. They came seeking work, independence, and excitement, but they were not to realize these goals without contention.Carolyn Strange examines the rise of the Toronto ''working girl,'' the various agencies that ''discovered'' her, the nature of ''the girl problem'' from the point of view of moral overseers, the various strategies devised to solve this ''problem,'' and lastly, the young women''s responses to moral regulation. The ''working girl'' seemed a problem to reformers, evangelists, social investigators, police, the courts, and journalists - men, mostly, who saw women''s debasement as certain and appointed themselves as protectors of morality. They portrayed single women as victims of potential economic and sexual exploitation and urban immorality. Such characterization drew attention away from the greater problems these women faced: poverty, unemployment, poor housing and nutrition, and low wages.In the course of her investigation, Strange suggests fresh approaches to working-class and urban history. Her sources include the census, court papers, newspaper accounts, philanthropic society reports, and royal commissions, but Strange also employs less conventional sources, such as photographs and popular songs. She approaches the topic from a feminist viewpoint that is equally sensitive to the class and racial dimensions of the ''girl problem,'' and compares her findings with the emergence of the working woman in contemporary United States and Great Britain.The overriding observation is that Torontonians projected their fears and hopes about urban industrialization onto the figure of the working girl. Young women were regulated from factories and offices, to streetcars and dancehalls, in an effort to control the deleterious effects of industrial capitalism. By the First World War however, their value as contributors to the expanding economy began to outweigh fear of their moral endangerment. As Torontonians grew accustomed to life in the industrial metropolis, the ''working girl'' came to be seen as a valuable resource.
