Summary
Bingo must produce 36 dinners to pay for the phone bills he received from calling long distance to his girlfriend. Also use: Bingo Brown's Guide to Romance (1992). Bingo Brown's girlfriend has moved out of town but other problems beset him and his family in this sequel to The Burning Questions of Bingo Brown (1988) Bingo, that incomparable optimist, returns with even bigger issues to challenge him and charm readers. Melissa, the love of his life, has moved away, and Bingo is hit first with an enormous long-distance telephone bill and then with the empty feeling that his is a fickle soul. Bingo, with his wry, self-mocking tone, is just enough of a stumblebum to bring laughs, and enough of a thoughtful, considerate person that he defies all expectations readers may have about boys in books. He's a wonderful romantic, and a heartbreaker to boot
