The Girl of His Dreams is a novel of romance and self-discovery. Willis Pierce, the protagonist, daydreams of being a world-class runner and of meeting his dream girl. When Willis meets Sophie Browne, she in no way resembles his ideal. Although Sophie falls in love with Willis quickly, it takes much longer for Willis to let go of the vision of his physically perfect dream girl and recognize Sophie's special qualities. Their relationship develops with difficulty, and it is only when Willis almost loses her that he realizes how much he cares for Sophie.

A subplot dealing with Willis's other daydream of being a champion runner is woven into the novel. Sophie's help and encouragement enable Willis, in a somewhat comic way, to make this dream a reality. At the end of the novel, a new world has opened up for Willis. Sophie and Willis's relationship has been greatly strengthened, and both athletic and educational opportunities of which Willis had never even dreamed have been presented to him.
