The Realistic Story of a Girl Delinquent
Young Jadie Greenway was hard. On the squalid slum-streets where she was raised, a girl had to fight to survive...and fiery-spirited Jadie, demanding every child's right to grow up into decent maturity, never ceased fighting.
This powerfully realistic story of an adolescent girl's struggle against a brutal environment and easy temptations makes gripping reading. Seldom has Avon been privileged to bring its readers so authentic an indictment of one of society's most shocking flaws. The meaning of JADIE GREENWAY is starkly implicit in every scene, on every exciting page.
