But will Tiffany even notice Sam if he gives her a special valentine?

Praise For A String of Hearts

“The delightful title sets the tone for this sweet story of friendship. A lovely Valentine story about the real meaning of friendship.”
-School Library Journal

“Munsinger and Elliott sensitively convey classroom popularity dynamics and Valentine’s Day butterflies; the moment when Sam realizes that it’s Mary Ann he really likes should touch even Valentine’s Day grouches.”
