Second-grade Mattie exchanges a series of Valentine gifts with her "secret friend," Jeb the class clown, who is her secret admirer. She finds a way to have someone else babysit her brother Emmett during spring vacation—and then realizes she misses him. Mattie and Jeb build a treehouse in the glorious summertime. A fun early chapter book.
