When A.J. is assigned to take the cover photograph for her school newspaper, she stumbles onto a stuffed cupid that comes to life and catapults her into love. "Bauer's buoyant narrative will elicit chuckles as it delivers its message (thwonk!) with the accuracy of a well-aimed arrow from Cupid," said PW. Ages 12-up. (June)
