Super Secret Valentine

Super Secret Valentine

Are you ready Freddy? It’s almost Valentine’s Day and Freddy’s class is going to have a Valentine’s Day party. Everyone in the class needs to make sure to make enough Valentines to go around for the whole class so no one gets left out. But in Super-Secret Valentine by Abby Klein, Freddy wants to make a super special, one of a kind Valentine for his best friend, Jessie. All the kids in class, especially the class bully, Max already give him a hard time about his friendship with her so he has to try his best to keep his special Valentine’s Day project a secret.

Normally, Freddy’s mom buys already made valentines but this year, she bought all the materials for Freddy and his sister to hand make their cards. Construction paper, glitter, glue, scissors and special shark stickers, Freddy is worried he will never get them all made in time. It will take forever! But he gets started right away. Before he knows it, he’s got them all done, except the one he wants to make for Jessie. His sister quickly notices that Jessie’s is the only one left on his list and teases him about his “girl friend.” Freddy lies and tells her that it’s a super-secret valentine for their mom.

Now what is Freddy to do? He can’t just take the craft supplies up to his room. They are not allowed to have craft stuff anywhere but the kitchen because it could make a huge mess. Freddy’s mom is a major neat freak and if she caught Freddy in his room with it she would flip her lid. Maybe his other best friend Robbie could help him figure out a way to sneak all the stuff up to his room. He is a super smart kid and has helped sneak stuff up before.

Even if Freddy does get the super-secret Valentine done in time without his mom or even worse, his sister Susie finding out, how is he going to give it to Jessie without the other kids at school finding out? They already tease them and they even started singing “two little lovers sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G” making Freddy’s face turn shades of red that he never knew were possible. He was so embarrassed and red that the teacher thought he may have a fever and wanted to send him to the nurse’s office. Will Freddy be able to pull it off?
