When a blizzard threatens to ruin Valentine's Day, three seventh-grade friends make and distribute fortune cookies to their lonely neighbors and confront the secrets they ve been keeping from one another. 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 the other two. 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.
With all the right ingredients to appeal to tween girls, this is an irresistible confection from an emerging talent.

"The trio's romantic ups and downs tie the story together an affectionate, insightful ode to friendship. An enjoyable, sure-to-be popular read." "Booklist.
