I read this book in sixth grade (1973/74) It was from our classroom library. I could not put it down and when I rode the school bus home I missed my stop I was so caught up in it! It was one of my first experiences of thinking what it would be like to be a teenager someday (in those days an 11-year old was a pre-teen, not a 'tween) and I was just mesmerized to read about a girl in high school and dating, etc. I think there was a scene involving a Chinese restaurant and that was something I had never experienced either. This book is a fond memory and it may be a nice read for other little girls who are growing up. Beverly Cleary is a favorite writer for this age group and she rarely disappoints.

This was my FAVORITE book all throughout my pre-teen years. It's perfectly suited for a young girl who can't wait to grow up, have her first boyfriend, her first kiss... And, Moms, don't worry, it's age-appropriate too!
