"Classic" YA?  
Hey there! I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for older young adult novels, from the 1950s or 1960s... around the time of Maureen Daly's Seventeenth Summer. Anything like that?

I read one once where it was about paretheogenesis and the girl was named Mary, but I don't think that's what you mean. Um... I was never very big on YA modern life novels anyway. o_oa I can probably dig up some good historical novels written around then?

What about Fifteen, which i think was written by Beverly Cleary.
Can't think of anything else apart from Dodie Smith's I capture the castle which I think might be pre 1950s.

This is even older, but perhaps A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter? It's very much in the LMM style and a wonderful read.

Try 'Passport to Romance' or anything else by Betty Cavanna.
'Class Ring' and its sequels by Rosamond Du Jardin

Also, have you read the later 'Betsy Tacy' Novels...they aren't quite the period you're looking for, but only about 25 years earlier than 'Seventeenth Summer'

sorry, 'Betsy Tacy' books are by Maud Hart Lovelace
