Greenwald, Lisa Sweet Treats & Secret Crushes, 291 p. Amulet, 2012. $8. Content: G.
On a blizzardy Valentine’s Day, three best friends test the boundaries and dynamics of their friendships. Handing out homemade fortune cookies may have been a way to pass the time and to run into Kate’s latest crush, but as the girls’ day goes on, they are not sure that their friendship will last out the day.
Greenwald’s book is a great look at the real dynamics of a friendship. Though it may seem a bit fluffy, I think it is perfect for younger readers.
