I could use some Smart Bitch help trying to find a YA romance I read back when I was a teenager. It was most likely published in the 1990’s or maybe late 1980’s. The story involves cousins or a half-sisters (I can’t remember which) and for some reason one goes to live with the other’s family. The one who is moving in is blonde and hawt and lets her boyfriend feel under her shirt, Sweet Valley-style. The other cousin/sister is a shy brunette and fantasizes about some mysterious guy at her her school whom she secretly calls Johnny Blue or something like that. Meanwhile, this sensitive football player named Greg secretly has a crush on Shy Girl, so blonde sister pretends to date him so he can get closer to Shy Girl. Why this is supposed to work, I have no idea. The story ends up with her going on a date with Greg, who turns out to be a dynamo kisser. She also goes on a date with Johnny Blue, whom she ultimately rejects because he kisses like a cold fish.
I’m hoping the SB’s can help me with this one, because I’m drawing a complete blank!
Johnny Blue? BWAAHAHAHAH.
