Just Patty is the prequel to When Patty Went to College, which was Websters first novel. We see the same lovable prankster at school, causing just as much havoc as ever and delighting her fellow students with her scornful disregard for rules and etiquette.

I thoroughly enjoyed author Jean Websters charming book Daddy Long Legs about a plucky and pert orphan who makes good as a scholarship student at a college. Was it a little bit dated? Sure, but the novels heroine Judy Abbott was so good-hearted and realistically saucy and impulsive that I couldnt help but love the book.

Just as delightful is Webster’s Just Patty, which deals with the adventures of Patty Wyatt, a spirited -- her teachers would say impudent -- but kind-hearted high school senior at St. Ursulas boarding school. Patty is enthusiastic and creative to a fault. Pattys a natural-born leader and, with her bosom friends Conny [sic] and Priscilla, she’s able to set a number of situations right at St. Ursulas, including putting the kibosh to a fake romance, striking for better conditions in Latin class, Neither Patty nor her friends fulfill the stereotype of simpering, fluffy-headed ninnies so prevalent before suffrage and the feminist revolution. Despite some spirited hijinks, its hard not to like Patty! She’s so natural and open; she’s impudent but never cheeky.

You’ll also be struck by just how onerous a classical education is: geometry, French, French history, Latin, sociology, history, rhetoric, dancing, deportment, dramatics, English composition, English grammar, drawing, current events training, and more.

The novel, first published in 1911, is considerably less saccharine than its contemporaries, and modern readers will enjoy its rosy take on girlhood at the opening of the 20th century. With so many books focusing on dysfunctional teenage upbringings, Just Patty, with its idyllic view from St. Ursula, provides a nice, cheery change of pace.

~ Conclusion in English ~

Kisah kehidupan para remaja di sekolah asrama selalu menarik untuk disimak, terutama asrama para gadis belia yang tak pernah kehabisan akal dalam usaha mengisi kehidupan sehari-hari antara sekolah dan kegiatan waktu luang. Jika sebelumnya diriku terbiasa dengan kisah kehidupan sekolah asrama di Inggris karya Enid Blyton, maka kisah klasik karya Jean Webster ini, sedikit banyak memiliki kesamaan, meski lokasi serta para tokohnya hidup di Amerika.

Patty Wyatt, Pricilla Pond, dan Constance ‘Conny’ Wilder adalah tiga sekawan yang tak terpisahkan dan selalu siap beraksi melakukan kegiatan ‘hiburan’ ditengah kesibukan dan kebosanan menunaikan pendidikan mereka di Asrama St. Ursula. Tingkah laku mereka, Patty ‘sang pemimpin’ yang tak pernah kehabisan ide-ide baru, Conny ‘sang pemberani’ yang selalu siap mengikuti perintah Patty, disertai dengan Pricilla yang tekun serta rajin, menjadi bahan pembicaraan yang tak pernah habis dikalangan para guru. Hingga suatu saat, diambil keputusan bahwa ketiganya harus dipisahkan satu sama lain, tidak diperbolehkan tinggal bersama dalam satu kamar.
