Grade 7-10 Blueblood Retta Caldwell meets and, of course, falls in love with Dallas Dobson, son of Danny Dobson, a town ne'er-do-well. Their relationship develops predictably amidst the Caldwell family crises. Finally, Retta's father decides to move the family to California where Retta is pining for Dallas until he finds a job nearby, and readers will presume that everyone lives happily ever after. As romances go, this is fairly well written, and the characters have a bit more depth than those in the "Sweet Dreams"-style series. The parallel with Retta's mother's high-school almost-romance with Danny Dobson is perceptively drawn, and the cowboy image is not just pasted on Dallas. A quick, easy story that will be popular with early teens. Dorcas Hand, Episcopal High School, Bellaire, Tex.
