Lisa by Arlene Hale
In the book LISA, Brad and Lisa were the most popular couple in school. But Lisa soon got upsetting news that her parents are going to Paris for the summer, and that Lisa will be spending the summer with her grandparents in Reynolds, Iowa. Lisa hates Iowa and thinks she hates Charlie, "the country boy". But Lisa realizes that Charlie is caring and strong, and they soon fall in love. Lisa has to decide whether to go back to her old life or to stay in Iowa. The part that grabbed me the most was how Lisa grew to like Charlie, even though Charlie has always liked her. The mood of the book was funny at times and serious at others. Chessa H.
