Great Boyfriend Trap

Betsy Haynes, Author, Betsy Haynes, Introduction by Skylark Books $2.75 (0p) ISBN 978-0-553-15530-3
Scotti and Lorna, next-door neighbors and best friends from The Great Mom Swap, are back, and they both have the same goal: to have a boyfriend. Each of them also has a sincere interest in helping the other one get her guy. Scotti likes Lorna's older brother Skip (Lorna thinks he's a jerk). Lorna likes Fletcher, who has a crush on Scotti (she thinks he's a nerd). The friendship wavers several times as plans for boy-trapping flounder, but by the end the girls are writing to Lorna's Hawaiian pen pal, in search of more hopeful prospects. Haynes has fun showing the lengths best friends will go for one another; her breezy style carries off this pre-romance with just the right mix of seriousness and humor. Ages 7-11. (November)
