And Both Were Young by Madeleine L'Engle
Flip doesn't think she'll ever fit in at the Swiss boarding school chosen by her father's girl friend.  Besides being homesick for her father and Connecticut, she isn't sophisticated like the other girls, and discussions about boys leave her tongue-tied.  Her happiest times are spent apart from the others, sketching or wandering in the mountains.

But the day she's out walking alone and meets a French boy, Paul, things change for Flip.  As their relationship grows, so does her self-confidence.  Yet despite her newfound happiness, there are times when Paul seems a stranger to her.  And since dating is forbidden except for seniors, their friendship must remain a secret.  With so many new feelings and obstacles to overcome in her present, can Flip help Paul to confront his troubled past and find a future?
