'The nonfiction aspects of the subject and the era are subtly interwoven into Clara's own adventure; readers may not realize they're getting a history lesson as well as an exciting tale...Readers will follow with much interest Clara's experience as a young country girl out on her own, trying to learn the many details and rules of her new job...Although this fast-paced novel is well suited for its intended age group, adults will enjoy it as well. Foard supplements the story with a section on the real Harvey Girls history. In Kansas City, a Mrs. Steel hires the protagonist, saying: 'I like your spunk, Clara.' Readers will agree' - "Foreword Magazine". 'The 21st century ceases to exist once the reader opens the pages of this young adult novel. The author deftly recreates life on a poor farm, the trepidation of your first interview, and the excitement of starting your first job. Clara matures and grows, although at times her old self intrudes, just as in real life...Seamlessly interweaves history with fiction. Photographs depicting Harvey Houses and their staff, and information about the real Harvey Girls, are icing on the cake' - "Historical Novels Review".

In a time when there were limited career choices for women, becoming a Harvey Girl offered rare independence for young ladies. In 1919 one such Harvey Girl is feisty Clara Fern Massie, an Ozark farm girl who runs away from home on her fourteenth birthday after standing up to her harsh father. Heading west and taking a job as a waitress Harvey Girl the underage Clara struggles to learn the demanding Harvey Way and shed her farm-girl image to become a confident, independent woman.
