    In some ways, I like the early books the best where we see Beany and her siblings juggle busy schedules and stretch the housekeeping budget creatively Later on, as others have observed, it is infuriating to see Beany make the same mistakes and be so influenced by peer pressure shouldn t she know by now that everyone else is yearning to be a Malone Yet somehow this is one I keep rereading regularly because it adds something important to the series.Pick a New Dream is fascinating on several l In some ways, I like the early books the best where we see Beany and her siblings juggle busy schedules and stretch the housekeeping budget creatively Later on, as others have observed, it is infuriating to see Beany make the same mistakes and be so influenced by peer pressure shouldn t she know by now that everyone else is yearning to be a Malone Yet somehow this is one I keep rereading regularly because it adds something important to the series.Pick a New Dream is fascinating on several levels Influenced by her father and by Eve Baxter, Beany assumes she has a career as a writer but ends up taking a job at Lilac Way, the community center where next door neighbor, Carlton Buell, works Carlton was previously the most boring character in the series, but Beany suddenly sees her brother s best friend as an individual Hard muscles bulged under the white T shirt with grass stains on it He walked with an easy stride His blonde crewcut would, before the summer, be lighter than his ruddy, tanned face She had seen him so often with her brother Johnny, who was tall and lanky, that she had always thought of Carlton as short and stocky But he wasn t Carlton sees she is upset about her summer job on the newspaper falling through and says, We need someone to handle the teen age girls and their sewing and cooking projects Oh, we ll find plenty for you to do You don t have any race prejudice, do you Not that I know of an odd answer I didn t think you would, being a Malone Beany doesn t realize it right away but it is obvious to the reader that she was made for Lilac Way, although the challenges some of these underprivileged teens face are alien to her secure Malone life And working at Lilac Way, Beany sees how much everyone admires Carl and subconsciously her attitude toward him begins to evolve the hard muscles don t hurt, either Then, after she takes the lifesaving test, they kiss for the first time and it is a magical moment at least, as far as Beany is concerned, although she doesn t know what Carl is thinking and she is afraid of being like other girls who have sought his attention in vain It is a rare moment of passion in a world where girls who go too far are condemned asthanners, and thus very memorable.Carlton Buell is a hard sell to the reader too, as we were all at least half in love with Andy Kern big sigh but Weber conveys it admirably, at least in this book the other half is in love with Johnny Malone

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I love the Beany books Sure, they have their flaws, but I enjoy reading them so much I actually stayed up way too late finishing this one I just knew I couldn t fall asleep until I found out what would happen next Unfortunately, while reading this I made the mistake of reading some posts on the Weber Yahoo Group and accidentally stumbled across quite a few series spoilers I m still rather upset about that Not getting the plot spoiled is very important to me But back to the book Even I love the Beany books Sure, they have their flaws, but I enjoy reading them so much I actually stayed up way too late finishing this one I just knew I couldn t fall asleep until I found out what would happen next Unfortunately, while reading this I made the mistake of reading some posts on the Weber Yahoo Group and accidentally stumbled across quite a few series spoilers I m still rather upset about that Not getting the plot spoiled is very important to me But back to the book Even though I always liked Carlton in the previous books, for awhile in this one I couldn t figure him out Thankfully, in the end it all made sense and I loved how things worked out Because of the time and style in which these were written, a single swift kiss becomes a thrilling moment I think this is a testament to Weber s ability to get the reader completely immersed in the world of these characters I love what happened with Andy, and how Weber tied up that part of the story of I really liked him a lot but I am a Catholic so I can totally understand his decision Unfortunately, that was one of the parts that was spoiled for me by my careless browsing Grr Oh, and I just loved how Andy made that party a success at Lilac Way I thought the secondary characters in this were great I wanted to give Eugene a hug, I thought Vince and Violetta were very amusing, I appreciated Marcie s bluntness, and I loved the strength and calmness of Miss or was it Mrs Harper I love series that have a lot of books and allow me to really get involved in the characters and settings This is book eleven and I think I will be really sad when I finish the series I realize this review is kind of all over the place, but the bottom line is that I loved this book and am greatly looking forward to the next one

    This is one of a YA series about Beany Malone, a young woman growing up in 1950s Denver She s just graduated from high school and life has not turned out the way she had planned Once in a while I re read it to remind myself that life is good even if it s not what you had planned.

    My favorite Beany book title so far And the idea of two young people falling in love via doing hard work together and apart just knocks me out Go, Beany, go.
