About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Bad Example by Keun, Irmgard.

Description:

Orange cloth with silver lettering and green decorations. Bump to head and heel of spine. Previous owner signature in a childlike hand. Small discard stamp to front endpaper, and reverse of rear endpaper, the latter which also shows residue of a card pocket. No other libarary marks. Text is clean and bright, no marks. Unclipped DJ with $3.00 price shows sunning to spine. "If Holden Caulfield's younger sister had kept a diary (and lived in Germany) the result might very well have been this book. Here is the story of the exploits of a tomboy, leader of a gang known as the Devilish Desperadoes, and general terror of the neighborhood. But it is much more than that. With amazing psychological insight the author has been able to catch all the anxiety and despair of growing up a human creature amid the lies and deceits of an adult world." (from the jacket).
