Today I'm going to meet a boy, Jane Purdy told herself, as she walked up Blossom Street toward her baby-sitting job. (from the first line)
For use in schools and libraries only. Stan, the most popular boy in the school has asked Jane out, but despite his good looks, intelligence, and great personality, she is not sure if she is ready to date him.
From the Publisher:
A teenage girl laments her dates with unromantic George unitl she accidentally meets handsome Stan while baby-sitting.
High school sophomore Jane Purdy has her first experiences with dating when she agrees to go out with upperclassman Stan Crandall. First written and published in the 1950s, FIFTEEN reflects a more innocent time in American history--particularly in terms of sex roles and the ins-and-outs of high school dating. For example, Stan and Jane go on several dates (their first takes place at the local soda shop) and agree to go steady (after Stan gives Jane his ID bracelet) before they even hold hands or share their first kiss. This novel is illustrated with occasional B&W drawings depicting Jane in below-the-knee-length dresses, Stan in sweaters and pressed slacks, and Jane's mother (à la a typical 1950s homemaker) wearing dresses, pearls, and heels as she and her husband greet Jane's gentleman caller. Still popular today, FIFTEEN presents a sweet and, in a way, idealized portrait of the teenage dating scene.
Author Bio
Beverly Cleary
Beverly Cleary is one of the most popular and best-loved authors of children's books. Her works have sold over 75 million copies in 20 countries and have been translated into 14 languages. These figures are even more impressive with the added fact that Cleary had trouble learning to read when she was a child. Cleary has created many memorable characters including Henry Huggins and his dog Ribsy, Ellen Tebbits, and her most popular character, Ramona Quimby. In 1984, Cleary won the Newbery Medal book for DEAR MR. HENSHAW. She also received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for her body of work. Today, fans of Beverly Cleary can visit the town of Portland, Oregon--where Cleary was raised and set many of her books--and find a wading fountain featuring statues of Henry, Ribsy, and Ramona.
