The Misses Make - Believe. By Mary Stuart Boyd. (Chapman and Hall.

6s.)—This is a pleasant little story of no great literary merit, but with a certain freshness in the writing which makes the book agreeable. Those very silly young people, Belle and Eileen Fleming, are rather attractive, and the author contrives-td lend an air of probability even to their extreme folly. There is no very definite plot ; but considering the number of novels which attempt to horrify instead of please their unfortunate readers, it is a matter for gratitude to find a story in which the author'S intention is at any rate benign.
