I just read this, and I thought it was great. Dawn Schafer just meant the boy of her dreams. His name is Travis. He and Dawn have a lot in common, they both love health food, the beach, and he is from California like her! Dawn can't believe her luck! But one thing about Travis is, he is sixteen and Dawn is thirteen. Mary Anne, and the other girls in the BSC think that Travis is way too old for her and bosses Dawn around, but Dawn is in love. But when Dawn realizes for herself that Travis is too old for her, she learns the importance of taking advice from family and friends. I liked this book because it was realistic and interesting. Ann M. Martin has a way of weaving in a good, girl lessons while also adding light hearting touches like babysitting and friendship. I suggest it for anyone who likes friendship, babysitting, and "love at first sight."
