Phyllis A. Whitney: Willow Hill

Our last book by Phyllis A. Whitney is Willow Hill. Published in April 1975 by Signet, This is a story about kids whose high school becomes integrated and how they and their parents react to the new racial tension. Val was a senior and the editor of the school paper, so she had a front row seat to the events of her school and how her friends react.

Allan Kass gives us a typical cover of high school teens. Our heroine clearly has a choice between the two guys behind her. Note the detail and the African American boy in the background. It's a great cover and story.
