      4.5 STARSIn this fourth and final installment in the Tobey Heydon series (the Heydon family story does continue, however, with two books about younger sister Midge), Tobey and her long-time boyfriend Brose attend separate colleges. Though they plan that their hearts will stay loyal to one another, they both agree to date other people to find out if what they have together is "the real thing."In some respects, I liked this the best of the four books. It's nice to see Tobey mature, and I really en [...]

      Tobey and Brose decide to attend different colleges - to date other people, mature on their own, and figure out if what they have is the Real Thing. I love how Tobey makes good friends and develops her own interests, without pining away for Brose, always maintaining the sense of humor that made her a great teen heroine as she matures into a confident young woman. It is also a pretty good depiction of college life although four years go by awfully fast!This was one of the first books I ever bough [...]

      In this fourth book of the Tobey Heydon series, Tobey begins college in her home state of Illinois, while her boyfriend Brose leaves for college in Colorado.

I really liked about 90% of this book, mainly because there's very little Brose in it. Despite the fact that Tobey seems to view college as mostly [...]

      I am giving this 4 stars because my 12 year old self loved these stories and it has long been a goal to collect the entire series of Tobey books from the same years that I read them - no easy feat!I doubt that girls today would find any interest in these books but on occasion, not very often, mind you, I take one down from my bookshelf & spend a quiet few hours in a much simpler time.

      Definitely my favorite book out of the series

      I liked the light, airy feel of the story. However, I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the other books in the series that came before it. This felt like one of those filler books that authors write just to let the readers touch base with their favorite characters.

      Tobey goes to college! I love all the new characters and experiences she has. I wish I had read these books years ago!

      I love this for the whole 50's kitsch of the thing.
