Frannie is so shy, she thinks she might go all the way through high school without even being kissed, much less finding that one boy who would make her feel special. Then her girlfriends create The Plan, and Frannie has so many boys after her that she can't keep track of all the parties and dances.

Not everyone falls for the plan, though. Ronnie, the quiet, talented boy in

The first Sweet Dreams book I started out with - it got me hooked on the entire series for a large number of my teen years. It was such a sweet story, funny too in some parts even though I no longer remember exactly which parts. I just remember my sister staring at me funny whenever I laughed out loud while reading the book. I suspect it'll always hold a special place in my heart as one of the first teen books I had read after moving on from Judy Blume's books and such during elementary.

Poor Frannie, her life is such a misery! She might have to go through her entire time in school without... duh-duh-duh... being kissed! OHMYGODS!!!

...Yup, this book is as lame and stupid as it sounds. Nevermind the choppy sentences, facile sheep characters, this book doesn't even try to step away from bad teen melodrama and immaturity.

I need to go back and read this again before I rate, since I read it 25 - 30 years ago. It must not have been that horrible because it still sticks out in my head. I remember that my best friend from High School and I decided we should do our own popularity plan after we read it, though I don't think our plan got very far (and I don't think my best friend, the prom queen really needed the plan either).

I thought of it because I just read - How to Be Popular and about ten pages into it, I could o

Though I read this more as an expert evaluating the book to see if the advice would be effective, rather than a girl looking to get tips on how to be popular, I enjoyed it because Franny was such a lovely, sweet girl, and so original. The parents are a kick, the hero is so dreamy (I was sure from the first time he appeared on the page that she would end up with him!!!), and Franny was lucky to have such great friends. It's really a shame that this book is out of print.

Having read this book as a teenager, I recently found it in a box and reread it. I remember liking it, but this time around I found the characters to be one dimensional and the plot to be relatively ridiculous. Also, while it was culturally appropriate in the 1980s, some of the descriptions of things are now terribly out of date.

I thought that the plot in this book was kind of far-fetched. I don't think I would read it again, but it was okay.
