This "coming of age" story involves the 1950s Catholic education of eight Chicago children, following them from the start of elementary school through the senior prom and beyond.

Along the way it touches on such topics as first confessions, puppy love, patron saints, teacher's pets, sex education classes, and the importance of wearing panties under the school uniform's plaid pleated skirt. The main focus is on late-blooming Eddie Ryan and chubby Becky Bakowski, who become best friends, fall in love, and then go their separate ways when Becky decides to join a convent.

"Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
