This Is Not a Valentine by Carter Higgins

This Is Not a Valentine

This book is not a valentine. It doesn't have lacey edges or sugary hearts. But it is full of lucky rocks, secret hiding spots, and gumball machine treasures. This is a book about waiting in line and wishing for cinnamon buns. About recognizing that if you care so much about someone not thinking you care, maybe you really do. But wait—isn't that exactly what love is about?...

    This might be asking too much, but I would have loved to see this message of devotion be demonstrably reciprocated. It might be the world we are living in, but it bothered me to see a boy obsessively give gifts to a girl and the girl is never given a chance to respond or even speak. I might have to ...

    There were parts of this book that I liked, but there were some others that seemed kind of problematic, and the whole thing felt a bit uneven to me.Mainly, the thing I noticed is that the book feels dated. There are mentions of cursive (which isn't even taught anymore), a kid giving the jelly side o...
