Fifteen Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Fifteen

Fifteen year old Jane Purdy dreams of having a boyfriend, but she's not convinced it's ever going to happen. She's not a “cashmere sweater” kind of girl. Instead of a boyfriend, Jane has a regular babysitting job with one of her town's most notoriously misbehaved children. When Jane meets Stan Crandell, newcomer to her town, and he helps her out with a babysitting problem, life begins to look up. Stan is everything Jane hoped for in a boyfriend. Jane's just not sure he likes her as much as she likes him.
