Fifteen by Beverly Cleary

Jane Purdy isn't the cashmere sweater wearing type of girl and doesn't get vey many dates, until she meets a boy while she is babysitting for a neighbor's daughter who lives a few blocks away. The boy, Stan Crandall, delivers dog meat for the dog of the people she babysits for. Stan is the most popular boy in school, and to Jane's disbelief, he asks her out on a date. At the end of the book, Stan gives Jane his identification bracelet to show that Jane is "his girl". This book, FIFTEEN, by Beverly Cleary was a laughable and humorous book about a girl's first date. I enjoyed it completely. Chessa
