I must admit I was disappointed by Frederick Kohner s Gidget Here are some things you should know 1 It was originally published in 1957 2 It is to some degree based on a true teen girl named Kathy, nicknamed Gidget 3 Fredrick Kohner, the author, based the book on his own daughter and on his own daughter s coming of age story 4 It is set in Malibu in the mid 1950s 5 The book became popular enough that a movie was made 6 Presumably the movie and book were doing so well, it became a TV I must admit I was disappointed by Frederick Kohner s Gidget Here are some things you should know 1 It was originally published in 1957 2 It is to some degree based on a true teen girl named Kathy, nicknamed Gidget 3 Fredrick Kohner, the author, based the book on his own daughter and on his own daughter s coming of age story 4 It is set in Malibu in the mid 1950s 5 The book became popular enough that a movie was made 6 Presumably the movie and book were doing so well, it became a TV show There was something sweet and verging on innocent about the first movie and about the TV show Not so the book It may make itrealistic in some people s opinion 7 The book is written in first person.The heroine, Franzie, a.k.a Gidget, is fifteen years old an My edition of Gidget included introductory material that lauded the book as The Catcher in the Rye for girls, and I couldn t stop thinking about that while I read it I agree wholeheartedly, for what it s worth Gidget is a surprisingly foul mouthed bildungsroman about a girl who loves surfing and wantsthan anything to prove herself Sure, it s not quite as lite Ever since I learned they had Giget books i wanted to read them all This is my second time reading Gidget and I still love it My mom introduced me to alot of older movies and Gidget was always a favorite Love my momma for getting me into old movies their are some really good ones put there. I m amazed at how much I liked this book The new edition s forward by Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, who was the real life Gidget, puts the story in perspective Kathy Kohner was a petite less than 5 feet tall perky Jewish girl who became obsessed with surfing back in the days before the Beach Boys started singing about it, before most of America had even heard of the sport Her actual photo was used on the original book cover and again on the new edition In the novel, Gidget remains a petite brune I m amazed at how much I liked this book The new edition s forward by Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, who was the real life Gidget, puts the story in perspective Kathy Kohner was a petite less than 5 feet tall perky Jewish girl who became obsessed with surfing back in the days before the Beach Boys started singing about it, before most of America had even heard of the sport Her actual photo was used on the original book cover and again on the new edition In the novel, Gidget remains a petite brunette, but I can t recall any mention of being Jewish She became a blond in the movie as played by Sandra Dee Gidget is not interested in dating, at least not with her high school peers, and she is something of a tomboy But she also wishes that her bosom was bigger She s on the edge of discovering her sexuality at age 15 and is attracted to the college guys who spend the summer surfing Having seen and enjoyed the 1959 Sandra Dee film a year or two before reading the book I came to it expecting a fun, quick read with possibly some unintentional humor due to dated references slang While it is certainly fun and a term or two may have illicited a smile I was surprised by how modern this This was a strange and off putting book Gidget of 1960s TV and movies was based on a real person, Kathy Kohner, the daughter of screenwriter and novelist Frederick Kohner The summer she was 15, she spent all her time on the beach at Malibu Colony, hanging out with the surf bums and learning to surf herself, and her dad wrote this book based on that summer It s written from the point of view of Gidget two years after the fact, but possibly the combination of 1950s teen slang as voiced by the 5 This was a strange and off putting book Gidget of 1960s TV and movies was based on a real person, Kathy Kohner, the daughter of screenwriter and novelist Frederick Kohner The summer she was 15, she spent all her time on the beach at Malibu Colony, hanging out with the surf bums and learning to surf herself, and her dad wrote this book based on that summer It s written from the point of view of Gidget two years after the fact, but possibly the combination of 1950s teen slang as voiced by the 52 year old Eastern European author makes it readas if it were a conversation you were having with a crazy elderly relative who s telling you inappropriate stories at the family p
