Margot Button has a resolution for 7th grade: Be more normal.
But it’s much easier said than done when the odds are so firmly stacked against her. Not only does Margot have a big mouth (and even bigger hair) but she got busted for shoplifting a glazed ham last June, and her best friend Erika-with-a-K is being sent to private school because of her bad influence. Now, not only will she be facing 7th grade with a new nickname (Hamburglar), she’ll also be facing it alone. But just when all hope for reinventing herself seems lost, a new girl shows up.

All Elyse Ulrich wants is to get through Valentine’s Day as painlessly as possible, but working at Goodman’s Gifts & Stationery—surrounded by singing Cupid dolls, tacky heart-shaped balloons, and sappy cards with poems that don’t even really rhyme—is not helping.
Neither is Patrick, the new boy at the mall who keeps asking her out. So what if he’s charming, considerate, funny, and, okay, really cute? Elyse isn’t interested in putting her heart on the line. But as February 14th approaches, avoiding Cupid’s arrow turns out to be a lot harder than she expected.
