Dutton, Avon Paperback
Rebecca is the daughter of a children’s book writer
who is continually eavesdropping on her, and using her as a character
in a book. Except that those characters are nothing at all like Rebecca.
They’re better looking, exciting, and have story-tale romances.
When shrimpy, cry baby Jason Furst moves next door, Rebecca not only
solves the mystery of his family, but develops her own romance that is
very different from the ones in her mother’s book.
