This book was very inspiring for females to realize that guys aren't as beautiful inside as they may appear on the outside. Not everything that shines is gold. Johnny was the typical high school stud that every girl dreamed of, however, he wasn't what a caring girl would want her significant other to be. I totally recommend this book because it shows that people's looks aren't the most important thing in a relationship. I read this book a couple of years ago when I was 15 and it affected the way I look at guys. I think all teenage girls should read it (or non teenage girls who are teenagers at heart).

I have read most of Beverly Clearly's books starting with Ramona and Beezus. A few years ago, I saw Jean and Johnny and read it. It was a fun read and I looked for more about Jean.

Jean is a young women who is enjoying high school and a new friend. With so many teen books focusing on the lewd things; you wont have to worry with this book. Beverly Clearly takes you right to the heart of a young girl who wants a boyfriend and how she treats others along the way. Jean is an exceptional student has has good manners. When JOhnny comes along, Jean's attitude toward others changes. Read it and find out.

    Teen Angst at its finest!

    This book is great because even though it came out in the 50s, it kinda reminded me of one of those 80s teen movies I loved as an 80s teen (and still love -- I'm a teen at heart) JEAN is the Molly Ringwald character, of course. JOHNNY, is the handsome Emilio Estevez/Rob Lowe/Andrew McCarthy-type dream boy. HOMER, was the cute-in-a-dorky-way guy who would be played by someone like John Cusack or Jon Cryer or Anthony Michael Hall. Johnny may have been going steady with himself, but Homer was funny and sweet a la Duckie Dale/Ted the Geek/Brian Johnson/Lane Meyer/Lloyd Dobler.
