      I think this book is 3rd or 4th book in the series. This is a really good book. You might want to read this around Valentines day. The main character in this book is not only Evan and Jessie. Megan is kind of a main character too. Try this book guys.

                      I rate this book as fair since I admire one of the protagonists, Jessie Treski’s, personality. Jessie is the youngest person in her brother’s class since she skipped a grade. Jessie usually doesn’t talk to any of her classmates except for her best friend, Megan Moriarty, so I didn’t think that she could be a leader, but when she wants, to she can. For example, when Jessie’s teacher, Mrs. Overton, was absent, there is a substitute. Somebody calls the substitute on her phone, so she answers it outside, when Jessie has to control her classmates and hand out a survey she made to collect information for her newspaper article. She acts as a leader or a teacher; eventually having her classmates to listen to her since the substitute told her that she could pass the surveys out. When Megan is secretly putting candy hearts that her uncle made from a candy factory into her classmate’s Valentine’s Day boxes, Evan realizes that he received different ones from everybody else. His classmates have candy hearts that say special messages about their personality; however, Evan has regular candy hearts that aren’t personalized for him. It makes him angry at whoever keeps giving the candy hearts, since he doesn’t feel as appreciated by the secret person. He doesn’t want normal store-bought candies when everybody else receives special ones. I don’t appreciate that the author made Evan think this way since he might not have understood that those were supposed to be special for him; from Megan. She thought that Evan would understand that those were special, but Evan isn’t that likable of a person.
