[a solid clean book, with just minor traces of wear to extremities; jacket faintly dampstained at edge of rear panel, with very light soiling and a teensy bit of paper loss at the top corner of the rear panel]. Juvenile girls' fiction about a young woman who becomes a tour guide at the United Nations in New York, driven in part by "her desire to escape from the shadow of her father's fame as a radio commentator in Washington, D.C., and find herself as an individual." According to the jacket blurb, author Whitney "spent months making the acquaintance of the guides, watching the routine of their work, sitting in at the production of their radio programs, learning to be at home with her background." (A note: at the time of this book's publication, the UN building was less than four years old.) . (Inventory #: 22132)
