PSM ended up fine while the less attractive girl down the hall who was taken advantage of in the backseat by some drunken boy after a party died from her botched abortion. So maybe the moral there was the pretty girl who uses birth control will be ok but the ugly girl who goes to the med student for her abortion will die every time.

God, I cried buckets at that movie...

Junie, two words...Thorn Birds.
LOL. Yeah, it was the ugly girl who usually got the shaft. Or the tough girl. Never the pretty starring actress.

I just looked PSM up....boy she really was beautiful. She still is. I'm glad to see it looks like she hasn't had work done, she looks just like her beautiful self but an older version.

So most of these books I have read and I am going to read the rest. I take my boys to the library once a week and I am just going to pick a tragic teen book every time. I did finish "Go Ask Alice" yesterday. The worst part was that at the end of the book she had completely turned her life around. So the moral is if you do drugs and have sex, even if you go straight and get a "nice" boyfriend, you will still DIE.

I did call my best friend and tell her the book was a fake. She says now we get to run away, sleep around and do a lot of drugs. How long before our husbands and kids will miss us?

What a fun thread! I've been reading it on and off all day, whenever I get a chance to sit down. Best one I've read on the DIS in a long time...

Hate to say this, but when I read Go Ask Alice, I thought it was cool and adventurous.

Actually, Karen Killilea is alive and well at 67 and living in NY.

Over 20 years ago, my DH and I stopped in Larchmont on the way home to RI from NJ. Many times I had made that trip and wondered about the family and their house "Sursum Corda" when I saw the Larchmont signs, so my DH said "Let's do it." It was pretty cool to see the place I had read so much about. At the time, the family was still living there, and I could see that people were home. DH wanted me to go up to the door but I figured their lives had been disrupted enough over the years. AND...I was chicken.

Here's an update on the family:

Marie Killilea - Marie passed away on 23 Oct 1991, of respiratory ailments, aged 78. She suffered from lung cancer in the early-70's and this may have been related. At the time of her death, she had six grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Her last book, a children's book called Newf, was published posthumously around 1992.

Jimmy Killilea – Jimmy passed away aged 83, on what would have been his and Marie’s 61st wedding anniversary, 25 July 1994, he suffered from Alzheimer’s' disease during the last years of his life, and his last address is that of a nursing home in Stamford, Connecticut.
Quote:
Karen Killilea - now lives in New Rochelle. After finishing high school, she considered joining a religious order. She now lives alone in a handicapped-accessible apartment building, and works as a secretary for a Trinity Retreat. She also serves on the board of the Cardinal Hayes Home for Children.
Gloria (Kyle) Killilea Lea & Russell LeaGloria passed away on Nov 28, 2001, and Russ on Feb 15, 2002. Gloria’s obituary noted that was employed as a legal secretary for 21 years, and was also very active in the American Legion Auxiliary, serving as Secretary and Chaplain. Russ worked for Madison Square Garden as a television engineer for 29 years, until his retirement in 1990. He was a past commander of the Yorktown American Legion Post, a past Chef de Gare of the Westchester County 40 & 8, and a former Deputy Representative for Veteran’s Affairs Voluntary Service. As well as their daughters Mary deLourdes and Evelyn Ann, the couple had two sons, Russell and James, and they are also survived by 3 grandchildren.
Quote:
The little red house in Yorktown burned down on the night of July 31 1968. Russ was working at the time, and while Gloria was able to rescue her sons from their second-floor bedroom, she couldn’t reach the girls sleeping on the third floor. Tragically both Mary and Evelyn died, as did a visiting cousin, Michelle Smiley, the daughter of Marie jnr and Ronald Smiley. After the fire, Gloria and Russ moved with their sons to a rented house in Yorktown, where they lived for some time before moving to nearby Cortlandt, where the couple still lived at the time of their deaths.
Marie Killilea Irish - lives in Farfield, Conn. Marie appears to have married twice, as her last name is different to that of the man she married in ‘With Love…’. She had four children, Ronald jnr, Christopher, and Robin; and Michelle, who died in the fire at Russ and Gloria Lea’s Yorktown house.

Rory Killilea - he was in the army circa 1971, and was married and the father of an infant. He lives in Seattle.

Kristin Killilea Viltz - she was also showing dogs by age 15, with some success. She and her daughter were apparently the last of the Killileas to live at Sursum Corda, before selling the house. She now lives in Tarrytown.

BIG MARIE'S OBIT doesn't mention Gloria (who was not legally adopted) as a daughter, and it appears from information gathered that they had been estranged for a long period of time:
Quote:
Marie Killilea of Larchmont, co-founder of the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation and author of a novel about the disorder, has died at New Rochelle Hospital Medical Center. She was 78 and died of respiratory ailments.

Mrs. Killilea, who died October 23 (91), became an ardent supporter of cerebral palsy victims after it was discovered that her third child suffered from cerebral palsy.

She was born on June 28, 1913, in New York City, to Tom and Marie Powers Lyons. Her father was a sportswriter for the New York Sun and later became co-owner of a Wall Street brokerage firm.

Mrs. Killilea was educated at the Mount St. Vincent Academy in Riverdale. She graduated from the Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School. She married James Killilea on July 25, 1933. They were residents of Beach Avenue in Larchmont since 1951, and previously lived in Rye.

After discovering their third child, Karen, had cerebral palsy, the Killileas consulted 23 top medical specialists and clinics in the United States and Canada. Mrs. Killilea wrote to hundreds of parents of handicapped children and was an active lobbyist in Albany for the rights of cerebral palsy patients. Her work culminated in the formation of the Cerebral Palsy Association of Westchester County. Later, she was a co-founder of the National United Cerebral Palsy Foundation.

Mrs. Killilea encouraged Karen to train dogs for show, breaking new ground for the handicapped. She wrote a novel, "Karen," which became a best seller in 1952 and has never been out of print. A sequel, "With Love From Karen," was published in 1963 and it is still in print. She wrote other books as well.

"Karen" won a Christopher Award and was one of the 30 Notable Books of 1953. Her books, totaling 4 million copies, have been> published in 11 languages. Mrs. Killilea received letters from all over the world, and she once estimated she answered 15,000 or more.

She is survived by her husband; four children, Marie Irish of Fairfield, Conn., Karen Killilea of New Rochelle, Kristin Viltz of Tarrytown, and Rory Killilea of Seattle; six grandchildren, and one great grandchild.

Memorial contributions are being made to St. Camilla's, a home for the elderly, Elm Street, Stamford, Conn. Arrangements were handled by the Fox Funeral Home in Larchmont.

Anyone remember "Lisa Bright and Dark"? It was about a girl who was mentally ill. I must have read it 100 times, each time I was more and more convinced I was going crazy too. Teenage girls are so impressionable

You all can remember much better than I can, so maybe you can help me with a book that I read during my teen years (late 70's early 80's). I vaguely remember the plot. A girl goes off to boarding school for the first time, has a roommate who golfs, the girl's heroine was Katherine Hepburn, she is dying to get into Bryn Mawr and she ends up having a crush on an older female student. Does anyone remember this one?

Sadly, I don't even remember how it ends.

TIA!

Who remembers " The Best Little Girl in the World " ? There was another one also but I can't remember the name. Both were about girls with anorexia. I used both as guides to help me lose weight. I don't think that was what you were supposed to do.
