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.
