Beverly Cleary is one of America’s most popular authors. More great fiction by beverly cleary: Ellen Tebbits.

Beverly Cleary is one of America’s most popular authors. Born in McMinnville, Oregon, she lived on a farm in Yamhill until she was six and then moved to Portland. After college, as the children’s librarian in Yakima, Washington, she was challenged to find stories for non-readers. Her characters, including Henry Huggins, Ellen Tebbits, Otis Spofford, and Beezus and Ramona Quimby, as well as Ribsy, Socks, and Ralph S. Mouse, have delighted children for generations.

Fifteen is a juvenile fiction novel written by Beverly Cleary. It was first published in 1956. It chronicles the perspective of a teenage girl entering her first romantic relationship. The book captures the innocent spirit of life in the 1950s, both through the playfully light storyline and the casual references to convertibles, sweaters, "meeting boys", and soda shops. Regardless, the book remains in print today because its overall theme of difficult adolescent feelings still connects with young readers.

Unlike other 'teenage' authors, Mark does not pander to the audience she has won. Her characters are mainly clever, mature and articulate people, with unusual interests and knowledge of various things. I was very interested to learn what a Phyrric victory was from this book - I had never come across the term before.

Beverly Cleary is better with children books. But still, I enjoy her coming-of-age stories

It seems too good to be true  . But he's welcome to stop by and take me for a ride in his powder blue coupé anytime. Beverly Cleary is better with children books. But still, I enjoy her coming-of-age stories. Whenever you need a funny and innocent book between these heavy mind-blowing and twisted stories, you know you can't go wrong with Cleary.

Loud pop songs and hugs.

This book made me feel all sorts of happy. It is a lighthearted read that touches all the right places. I feel like it started contemporary YA romances. It's all the same premise but set in 1950s. Girl is looking for love. Boy popped out of nowhere. Boy liked Girl. Girl has insecurity issues and thinks Boy doesn't really like her. A pretty girl comes in. Confusions happen. Girl finds herself. Boy gets the confidence. And it is all happily ever after. It is a really nice read. I realized that love really conquers time. Regardless of the year when it is happening, romance still plays out the same and it's fun to read it from a 1950s perpective. I had to look it up how teens dress during those years. What is an ID bracelet. Why can they go out and date during their teen years. I thought parents should be more strict during those years but turns out it is because the civil war just ended, parents encourage their children to date and get married earlier. The only part that made me cringe is when Stan finally gave his ID bracelet to Jane and he said "You're my girl". OMG, too cheesy!!! But I guess that's how it really is during those years. So there, read this book, you will enjoy it. This book made me feel all sorts of happy. It is a lighthearted read that touches all the right places. I feel like it started contemporary YA romances.

This book is written by Beverly Cleary. This story is obviously from a different time. It is interesting to read about a girl who is dealing with babysitting, life, and wanting to date. She meets a new boy and her world becomes brighter but full of different thoughts and emotions and problems. There are a few ups and downs that seem much more dramatic than they really would be in real life. Although, kissing another boy while dating another would not be a good idea. It’s clear that it is not a good idea in the story but it could have been a better situation I guess. The story ends perfectly fine but there is nothing that makes this a ‘wow’ story. I understand it is older and there are a lot of parts of the story that are very old fashioned. It’s endearing but also made me cringe. I do like the story. It’s refreshing to read something about young love that is not full of making out or crazy parties. It could stand a slight update though. Overall it’s a nice, safe story and very quick to read.

I was so happy when I saw that preteen girls are still reading this book! I didn't think it could still be as sweet, as heartwarming, as absolutely perfect in this modern day of bras at 8 and significant others at 12.
"Fifteen" was my hope when I was a gawky preteen girl, positive that I would never have a date in my life. So thinks Jane Purdy, our heroine, a nice, ordinary (in her eyes) babysitter who gets good grades and has a reasonable enough life--except at 15, she has yet to date, yet to be kissed, yet to unlock the mysteries of just what one is supposed to do on a date!
Along comes just about the most popular boy in the entire class, Stan, who not only asks her out, but who TAKES her out. Jane is excited beyond belief, but so nervous, she is sure she has flubbed her chances of every seening Stan--or any boy--again. I could relate completely when I was a preteen, and even now, Jane's anguish rings so true!
I won't give away the ending, but suffice to say that it is absolutely perfect. If there is a young girl in your life, buy her this book. She might make noises about "old-fashioned" and "in YOUR day..." but I'll bet she reads it--and loves it.

"Fifteen" takes us back to 1959 - back when milk was delivered to your door and dogs ate horse meat and girls didn't call boys on the phone. Babysitter Jane Purdy resolves that "Today, I will meet a boy."

And, by golly, she DOES! Stan Crandall, doggie meat delivery boy, strolls into her life as she's having a nightmarish time babysitting an eight-year-old monster (actually, I know kids like that one -- not much has changed since the fifties).

How many 16-year-old boys today can date a girl for months without even asking for a kiss? How many 16-year-old boys today (or 30-year-old men, for that matter) are gentlemen enough to wait for the young lady to be seated before sitting down himself? Stan is perfect. And after some miscommunication and misunderstandings, they finally connect. And it's absolutely beautiful. A "must read" for all romantics, ESPECIALLY the hopeless ones.

I read this book when I was in elementary school so when I ran across it on Amazon, I decided to read it again.

It's still sweet and as unrealistic now as it was then. Still, I like a little innocence every now and again.

I bought this book, because I remember reading it as a child & also my daughters reading it when they were young. Just wanted to relive some of those days. Enjoyed it then, still enjoy it now....a simple read....takes me back to when times were carefree.

This book was one from my childhood that I loved and now to re-read it is so refreshing. Hoping for dates, trying to find yourself and just in general always feeling like you're not quite as grownup as the rest. A fun read and a great book from the days of babysitting and malt shops, and a fun way to spend a bit of reading enjoying yourself.
