Gidget Author:Frederick Kohner ---"the one and only Gidget.
Surfers, Malibu, and America's most irresistible teenage heroine--the wonderfully fresh novel that helped to launch the nations newest craze!"
Made into a familiar movie this book is better. We never heard Sandra Dee use the term bitchen the way Gidget uses it so freely in this novel.
If you have seen the movie ; you only know half the story in this sweet novel of its time. The turbulant 60's. This Gidget is not nearly so sweet as her counterpart on screen. This Gidget "flips the bone" what we call "giving the finger"; this Gidget still has teenaged angst(sic)and parental defiance. This is the classic tale that led to a classic book.
