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?...

    I really liked a lot of things about this book, but a couple of things leave me questioning. It's so obvious the Kevin really likes the little girl, but is his liking returned? That's not clear at all, especially when the back endpapers are seen. The valentine she gave Kevin at the beginning is exac...
