A really nice, sweet account of a 15 year old girl and her first romance in high school.Those who criticise it for being "dated" have to remember that it was written to portray the way things were at THAT time, not how some people years later might have preferred.Some people criticise it for being too "detailed", too "slow". Well, you don't need "action" to make a good story.And this allows you to really understand, to get inside the character,and to visualize the story as if you were actually seeing it hapen on film.You really understand how she feels,whether or not you agree with that.
