Gretchen Sprague: A Question of Harmony

Switching gears, we have Gretchen Sprague's young adult story, A Question of Harmony. Published by Signet in March 1969, it's the story of Dave, Jeanne, and Mel, a black friend from school. Their friendship would set their town buzzing and upset the prejudice.

Allan Kass gives us a sweet picture of our teen couple sitting on a log near a stream. The autumn colors blend with their clothes as they relax and draw strength from each other. I like how Allan portrays them just at the right age--they don't look like adults or young kids. He did a few young adult or teen novels and they are all a treat to see since I was unaware of them for a long time.
