Sweet Dreams #39 First Love and #40 Secrets

Sweet Dreams #39 First Love, Debra Spector, 1983

Tracy and her mother agree on one thing—this is going to be Tracy's summer for romance.  her mother has big plans—a worldly, sophisticated guy, an outsider to their small seaside town.  But Tracy's got her eye on David, the assistant chef at the restaurant where she works.  And David likes her too.  They'd be a perfect couple, if only Tracey's mother would give him a chance.

Then they cook up a plan so delicious, Tracy's mother is sure to come around.

Tracy's mother is so annoying.  She thinks she knows better than Tracy what kind of boy that Tracy would like, and she picks out boys who are poor matches.  Ugh.

This is a very good book.

Sweet Dreams #40 Secrets, Anna Aaron, 1983

Ginny falls for Hal the first time she sees him.  Their dates are lots of fun.  But their joking is a substitute for real talk.  Ginny doesn't really know how Hal feels about her.

Maybe if she reaches out to him, gets involved in his interests, Hal will open up to her.  She even asks him for hang-gliding lessons.  But Hal's still holding back.  Does he like her, or doesn't he?

I quite unfortunately read almost half the book.  I was enjoying the story well enough, even though I didn't find it that great.  By halfway through the book, I realized that it was hopeless.

The way that Ginny and Hal behave with each other is just annoying.  The jokes are awful, and the two end up fighting.  What kind of romance is that?  What a waste of time reading half the book.

I quickly skipped through the second half of the book.  I won't spoil the ending, but Ginny sounds like an idiot on the last page.  I am glad that I didn't read the second half, because the ending is not satisfying.  Ugh.
