My first thought as soon as I finished? "Awww." I thought it was so cute! It puts me back to being 15 and having a crush or a boy that I liked and it was a fun read. I've read the Ramona Quimby books, which definitely differs from Fifteen because Ramona was a younger girl who got into mischief and trouble along her way, and Jane was a teenager focused on love, friends, looks (I.e. the social life). I was definitely able to relate to some of Jane's experiences, such as relying on a best friend to get all the details on a boy, waiting on a boy to call, getting excited and not being able to think about anything else. We've all been there, right? It's like a whole different world when someone has your heart strings in a rumble. I think it fits with my original idea of YAL, it relates to those who read it as well as takes them away to a different time or place.
