First Love
5 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Laura is in love with the new boy in school. He's barefoot, fifteen year old, and has no education. But when Laura sees him for the first time, she falls madly in love with him. No! Really, she does!

There's only one problem. Johnny Johnson is in love with someone else. He loves Mary. Can you say sisterly rivery? Well, not really because unfortunately, Mary is NOT in love with Johnny!

Laura does everything she knows to try to get his attention. She even tries to act like a girl. But no matter what, Johnny only has eyes for Mary. Oh, thinks Laura's a pretty unique girl, but that's not exactly how Laura wants Johnny to see her!

We'll encounter Johnny in another episode as he and Mr. Edwards make a trip to a nearby town (Sleepy Eye or Mankato), and Johnny encounters another true love. That episode is much, much better. Then the person who plays Johnny later comes back as Almonzo's younger brother. Of course, I like him the best in this episode.

Though I liked the ending when I was a little girl, now I just think it's a bit cheesy.
