Staff Review Aug 27, 2021

This teen comedy TV series was years ahead of its time and unappreciated when it aired in 1982-83, cancelled before the full first season could be finished. It’s a shame because it’s so smart and funny and different from anything else on TV at the time. It probably would have done better 15 or 20 years later, but it’s so endearingly ‘80s, I can’t imagine it at any other time and being so charming.

Haylah Swinton is a sweet daughter and a fiercely loyal best friend. But most importantly, she can make anyone laugh. When she finds herself with a guy stepping into the spotlight, she jumps at the chance of ghostwriting for his sets.

Loved the book. Very bright. Rebecca really captured the ups and downs of this girl Haylah. I'm excited for Pretty rude for a girl to come out.
