Seventeen  (1916) 
by Booth Tarkington
"Seventeen: A Tale of Youth and Summer Time and the Baxter Family Especially William" is a humorous novel by Booth Tarkington that gently satirizes first love, in the person of a callow 17-year-old, William Sylvanus Baxter. Seventeen takes place in a small city in the pre-World War I Midwestern United States. It was published as sketches in the Metropolitan Magazine in 1914, and collected in a single volume in 1916, when it was the bestselling novel in the United States. — Excerpted from Seventeen (novel) on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
