Sixteen-year-old Jeanie clocks in at "five-foot nothing." Though she laments her short stature, it doesn't stop her from having a crush on the much taller, Gary, or from being a powerhouse in her own right. When Gary manhandles her in the name of fun, Jeanie shows that while she may be petite, her personality sure isn't.
Determined not to wind up just a pal of Gary's, Jeanie decides to take matters into her own hands.
boyfriend this story he saw Gary as a bit of a bully. I (having once been an awkward teenage girl) saw the teasing that Jeanie endured at the hands of her crush a classic example of flirtation -- but not the good kind. More along the lines of the kind that necessitated a cheering up by my very patient and wise mother.
Obviously, times have changed with how we react to such flirtations. While I'm gonna guess such teasing and subsequent Judo moves wouldn't fly in a school today, I do think the story is a good example of the tumultuous subject that is teenage love.
What do you think? Is "Too Teeny Weeny to Love" innocent and romantic or something else altogether?
