Farrar straus giroux. It is with great excitement that we can continue to honor the legacy of Madeleine L’Engle with the republication of this version of And Both Were Young. Léna Roy. To Jo. I saw two beings in the hues of youth. Standing upon a hill, a gentle hill. And both were young-and one was beautiful.

Madeleine L'Engle; introduction by Léna Roy. Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L'Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts. Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L'Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater.

L’Engle’s granddaughters, Lena Roy and Charlotte Jones Voiklis, narrate .

L’Engle’s granddaughters, Lena Roy and Charlotte Jones Voiklis, narrate Becoming Madeleine, a biography they wrote for the middle-grade se. Spiritual allegory? The book, which went on to win a Newbery Medal, is all this and more. But the story of how young Madeleine L’Engle Camp actually became Madeleine L’Engle, making the leap in one book from midcentury author of domestic dramas to high prophet of earnest confidence in humanity, filled with creative drive, spiritual enthusiasm - this remains something of a mystery.

Thank goodness, oh, thank goodness, Jackie and Solvei had their backs to the door and had seen neither Paul nor his signal ghost. Flip pretended to choke and said, I just swallowed the wrong way. May I have the butter, please, Solvei?

Anyhow, And Both Were Yong is the story of Flip a young (15 maybe?) American who is sent to a Swiss boarding school by her artist father in the late 1940's.

Before there was Madeleine L'Engle, the Author, there was Madeleine L'Engle, the Girl. Born in 1918 to creative parents-her mother, a pianist; her father, an ailing writer-L'Engle developed an early appreciation for the arts. She spent much of her life in New York City, but she got a taste of other cultures too: She studied at an English boarding school, lived briefly in France, and then moved to South Carolina. The 1980s reissue of And Both Were Young is L'Engle's intended version, as certain content was censored for its original 1949 publication. By Madeleine L'Engle.

Flip feels miserable when she first arrives at boarding school in Switzerland. Then she finds a true friend in Paul. But as the two become more and more close, Flip learns that Paul has a mystery in his past―and to help him discover the truth, she must put herself into serious danger.

This new edition of one of Madeleine L'Engle's earliest works features an introduction by the author's granddaughter, the writer Léna Roy.

I first read this book when I was twelve years old. My local librarian had recommended A Wrinkle In Time, and that was so great that I hunted down the only other L'Engle book available to me at that time. I found the boarding school life fascinating, totally unimagineable to me at the time. Skiing as well. Flip's first trembling forays into love, real responsibility, ethics, and morality are all something any young child can relate to. This was a wonderful read; still is.

I have loved this book ever since I first read it around age 10. My daughters, now grown up, also read and loved it and still take it on every family ski trip we make! The setting in Switzerland is magical, and even the school is a place you'd want to be (I did!) Philippa is a totally human, identifiable fifteen-year-old, with her faults, foibles and very understandable feelings--I love her roommates, too, especially Erma.
At the same time, there is a dark side present in the aftermath of post-WWII Europe and the atrocities of Nazi Germany, from which Europe is still recovering. Through Paul and his parents' fate, through the life of Madame Perceval (Philippa's favorite teacher) and also, most sensititvely, through the divisions in Erma's family, there is realism, interjected into adolescent lives and concerns.
Good triumphs, however, and no one can be left un-cheering (and dry-eyed) at the end.
I will re-read this book every few years for the rest of my life!

If you are currently roaming the various written reviews deciding whether or not to read this book, stop, and read it. I guarantee you will not find a better written yet beautifully simple story. I believe this book will appeal particularly to teens (I say so because I am one) if not any age, and believe me when I say this, I do not (emphasis on the not) write reviews, but this book just demanded one even at 2:oo in the morning. To any readers who like romance, this is my favorite type, awkard in just the right way and deep yet relatable (not in a complicatly confusing manner as some books tend to gravitate towards). No doubt this book is well written, and in my opinion this book is better than A Wrinkle In Time, which I also love dearly. The scenes are described so vividly, and in such a straight forward manner with every word leaving a lasting impression. This is truly a must read, and once again, very relatable. I am so glad I stumbled upon this rare discovery! Despite being an avid book reader it has been a while since I've been so blown away.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book! It was such an enjoyable read. Will recommend it to my granddaughters!

Don't hesitate to read this one. I have always loved L'Engle's writing, and this novel did not disappoint. I instantly felt connection to the main character, Flip, and loved going through the school year with her.
Miromice
This is a gracious love story that reminded me of the books from older times. From start to finish, I loved it!
Pruster
A Granddaughter gift and she liked as usual, and couldn't put it down until the end.
Wonderful and sweet! Written in a time when the young were allowed to be young. Very enjoyable and a great work of fiction for the young of all ages.
