Confident Kate doesn’t notice much but the latest gossip, and shy Georgia can’t say out loud what’s always on her mind. They’re joined by observant, careful Olivia, whose epic, single-minded crush on PBJ (real name: Phillip Becker-Jacobs) is starting to frustrate them. Using fortune cookies that mysteriously always seem to speak directly to the person who opens them, the three girls try to work together to bring some love to their building while reminding each other why they’re such good friends to begin with.

A series of ten romantic episodes in the lives of B.J. and other students at Cutter’s Forge High as they plan for the Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Stomp.

“Tickets for the Sweetheart Stomp are still available at the student government office, Room 114, during lunch hours or half an hour after school.”

B.J. Green though, not for the first time, thought what a dumb name Sweetheart Stomp was for a Valentine’s Day dance. Not that she wouldn’t want to go to it, but it sounded like an event where you stomped your sweetheart unconscious.

But the social bigwigs at Cutter’s Forge High were heavy into alliteration this year. They’d called the Halloween dance the Halloween Hoedown. The Thanksgiving dance was the Turkey Trot. For Christmas they’d had the Holiday Hop. And now for Valentine’s Day the dance committee had come up with the Sweetheart Stomp.

That is, it usually means those things. But when you’re Princess Mia, nothing happens the way it’s supposed to. For one thing, Grandmère seems determined to prove that boy (or Michael, as he is commonly known) isn’t the right one for the crown princess of Genovia. And Mia isn’t having much luck proving otherwise, since Michael has a history of being decidedly against any kind of exploitative commercialization (Valentine’s Day, as it is commonly known).

Boris can declare his love openly to Lilly, and even Kenny comes through with a paltry Whitman’s Sampler. So why can’t Michael give in to Cupid and tell Mia he loves her—preferably with something wrapped in red or pink and accompanied by roses—in time to prove he’s Mia’s true prince?

I hope you enjoyed this collection of Valentine books for tween girls. Have your read any of these selections? If so, which ones and did you enjoy them?
