Seventh-grader Emma-Jean Lazarus uses her logical, scientific mind to navigate the mysteries of the upcoming Spring Fling, her friend Colleen's secret admirer, and other love-related dilemmas.

The Emma Jean series is sweet and smart. Specifically, the audio versions are fabulous! The reader, Mamie Gummer, narrated the first title as well and I simply cannot imagine meeting Emma Jean and Colleen without hearing their voices, their inflections and their oh-so-spot-on observations, always told in their deadpan or super-enthusiastic tones. Even if you have already read these, go listen to them, they deserve a second look, or listen!

Emma Jean Lazarus was a fun character. She talks as if she is more mature and knows all abour the male species. Spring Fever has hit her school and talk of the Spring Dance is everywhere. Emma and her friends plan a sleepover instead of going to the dance. Then one day at lunch they one of the girls announces they have asked a boy to the dance. Suddenly the others decide they will ask one. Colleen doesn't have a boy to ask. Later Colleen finds a mysterious letter in her locker telling her how special she is. Suddenly she has to know who her secret admirer is. She askes Emma Jean to find out who her secret admirer is. This was a wonderful story. I see thsi everyday at my school. The lesson learned from having that first crush, friends who really care and the mistakes that happen in true friendships are found throughout this book. I really enjoyed it.

This review refers to the audio book read by Mamie Gummer. Not having read the first Emma-Jean Lazarus book, I didn't quite understand Emma-Jean's precise, peculiar, stilted, and clipped manner of speaking. (truthfully, I still don't) Early in the book, I assumed that the protagonist's precise mannerisms would annoy me; however, as the story progressed - a story of first loves, friendship, misunderstandings, and a loving home, I became connected to, and charmed by the characters. Although the foreshadowing was a bit obvious for a book aimed at grades 5-7, the sum of all its parts was much greater than I anticipated. Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell in Love is a positive and heartwarming story with a touch of humor.
