Review quote

"Another delightful girls' story. Jean fifteen and petite, has a crush on Johnny, seventeen and tall."-- "School Library Journal""Mrs. Cleary has drawn another fifteen-year-old heroine with as sure a touch as that which pictured Jane in Fifteen. Readers will discover just as complete an empathy for the new Jean."-- "The Horn Book"
