"Our treasurer reports that we have exactly one dollar and fifteen cents in the treasury. Despite this dismal fact, we voted unanimously to undertake a trip of eleven hundred miles to Washington, D.C., next spring." What a wonderful, crazy idea! For Fran, president of the senior class, it meant headaches, hard work...and romance!...

Senior Trip Reviews
This is another book that I've read over and over. It's about a senior class in a small Iowa town that raises enough money to take a trip to Washington, D.C. I have no idea why it appealed to me so much, but I first read it in junior high and now own a hardcover copy (and I still read it on occasion).
Fun 1962 tale of a small Iowa senior high school class that plans a class trip to Washington, DC. I don't know if life was truly ever as simple as mid-century teen fiction paints it, but I love these kinds of books!
Really liked the way this started, but the romance was silly. Perhaps I am becoming more and more cynical in my old age?Love the fascination with Washington, but I wish there were more descriptions of the museums. . .
I read this back when I was 11 or 12. I read the first few pages again today and I'm thinking, "This is why this book stuck with me so long." I really think that moving to the DC area was put into motion even back when I read this, though it took me 20+ years to make the move
