Review:
In the small town where Mr. Bates has his car-repair shop, his young sons, Julian and Huey, are growing up in his understanding care. Julian's best friend, Gloria, now starring in her own book, also benefits from Mr. Bates benevolence. But she doesn't feel as close to her always-busy father--until the night he takes care of her. With insight into the contradictory behavior of the young, Cameron keeps Gloria's gentle misadventures ringing true.
