Abby is the object of unrequited love.

Abby thinks she's bonding with classmate Ross Brown over their mutual shared hatred of Valentine's Day and love poetry until he asks her to the dance. She says no, then catches grief from her friends about her meanness. Having learned, apparently, from the many stalkery romantic comedies, Ross continues to try to win her over by leaving her little presents, but she holds her ground and only becomes more anti-romance. Eventually, she is able to fob Ross off o

This is the book that the "Abby is totally gay" contingent in fandom points to and says, "Look. PROOF." Since Abby was mostly after my time in the BSC, apart from the occasional book picked up out of curiosity, I'd never read it before and I was curious.

And... I... don't really get the Abby is gay vibe. Instead it seems that Abby isn't interested in anyone. At all. Male or female, thank you very much

In the text it says: "Popcorn and a chiller thriller .. free candy and good friends. What more could I ask for from Valentine's Day"(132)? I absolutely agree with this theme. Not everything has to be ...more

Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the
