If the City Editor thought she was an amateur who didnt recognize good news when she saw it, how could she earn enough money to go back to college, and how could she convince the City Editor that he was wrong?Faced with this dilemma, Seldom remembered a course in candy making she had taken years ago in high school and, when she decided to make and sell candy, she precipitated herself into a summer of unexpected activity. Between batches of candy, she hunted for news and tracked clues on a mysterious jewel robbery not far from home.It was Seldons idea to sell candy on a subscription basis, but it was Hal Stodard, a college classmate, who put the idea across. As a partnership, which solved the job problem for Hal as well, they named the business SELDENS, and it grew steadily. Neither of them dreamed that, during the busy weeks of summer, Seldens candy bars, the jewel robbery, and Seldens career as a reporter would come to such an unexpected climax. Action, mystery, and romance combine in this lively novel of young people of today.
