Lila Fowler is dreading Valentine's Day. She has no valentine, and she's determined not to let her friends in the exclusive Unicorn Club know. So she tells everyone that she does have a boyfriend and sends herself flowers and candy to prove it. Her valentine's name is Gray Williams, and he's rich, cute, and completely made up.
The Unicorns are totally impressed, and Lila is thrilled until her friends pressure her into bringing Gray to the Valentine's dance. How can she bring a date that doesn't exist?

I think that young middle school readers might relate to the romantic crushes that the characters experience. It was an easy read. The book's characters perpetuate a certain standard of beauty (blonde hair; skinny, size two; white) that some young adults may not find relative to themselves. The dialogue and word choices (e.g. keen) were a little dated. Although the story addresses the pressures of wanting to fit in, it also sent the message that it is alright to keep up appearances and lie if you must in order to be perceived as cool.
This book is da bomb! And I want the fans out there to read it, if you still didn't read it yet. I couldn't put the book down, and I bet you, too, if you are planning to read it.
