Fifteen

by Beverly Cleary

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Ah, this was sweet and charming, Cleary writing about a time of innocence that probably never really existed.

But Ms Cleary captures very well the insecurities of the young and the manoeuvring between parents’ wishes and Jane’s own desire to grow up.

Although Jane does have some career ambitions and is part of a successful babysitting partnership, they pale to her desire to be Stan’s girl. I like to think that modern teens think of more than this!

A quick, easy read and I loved spending time with people as nice as Jane & Stan.
