Newbery Medal winner Beverly Cleary brings her classic warm humor to this funny and touching story about a girl who lacks self-confidence, and a boy who has too much.
Fifteen-year-old Jean is astonished when handsome Johnny whirls her around the dance floor. She’s never given much thought to boys before; now Johnny is all that’s on her mind.
Finally she finds the courage to invite him to a dance. But the excitement of a new dress and a scheme to take Johnny’s photograph cannot stop Jean’s growing uneasiness that she likes Johnny a lot more than he likes her . . .
