Jean starts chasing Johnny, a good-looking boy in her older sister's English class. This book is probably more like life in high school when your parents were in school but it's still amazing how many similarities there still are among girls and boys trying to get and be noticed today. Jean invites Johnny to a dance, he accepts but later backs down. Jean tries to make a great night of it with another guy -- a boy who used to hang around with Johnny.
