Fifteen

by Beverly Cleary

Jane has a date ... with handsome Stan Crandall!

Quiet Jane is amazed when a new boy in school, Stan Crandall, rescues her from a baby-sitting dilemma. And when Stan calls to invite her to the movies, she is thrilled. Her excitement is soon overwhelmed by a flurry of worries. What should she wear? Will her parents embarrass her? Is she grown-up enough for a boy like Stan? A taste of exotic Chinese food, a tired blue jalopy, and a case of appendicitis all figure in to this lively story of first romance.
