Flip doesn't think shell ever fit in at the Swiss boarding school. Besides being homesick for her father and Connecticut, she isn't sophisticated like the other girls, and discussions about boys leave her tongue-tied. Her happiest times are spent apart from the others, sketching or wandering in the mountains.

But the day she's out walking alone and meets a French boy, Paul, things change for Flip. As their relationship grows, so does her self-confidence. Despite her newfound happiness, there are times when Paul seems a stranger to her. And since dating is forbidden except to seniors, their romance must remain a secret. With so many new feelings and obstacles to overcome in her present, can Flip help Paul to confront his troubled past and find a future?

    " Fairly cliche. I think I liked Camilla better but I'm not sure. "

    " This book is great! It's about this girl called Phillipa (Flip for short), who meets this boy called Paul. Paul doesn't remember his past, but someone comes along who claims to be his father! Flip goes to a girls' boarding school and doesn't fit in. She sneaks off to meet Paul, but the problem is still there. Will she ever fit in? Also, Flip decides to ski in an upcoming ski meet, but no one can know about her secret training with Paul. The book is great and if you like school or trying-to-fit-in books, this is the book for you. "

    " And Both Were Young is good as boarding school stories go and has a sweet, quiet romance, but I don't think the part of the plot which has to do with Paul's history works very well with the rest of it. I mean, the wartime amnesia thing is fine and interesting, but not the mysterious stranger part. Anyway, I do like the convincing way in which Flip grows from shyness to confidence during the course of the book, and of course I pretty much always like boarding school stories. "
