Plumstead Middle School is full of secret plans. Eddie is on a mission to bulk up--he's sick of being the skinniest, scrawniest, runtiest kid in school. Sunny is plotting something that will keep the school bullies from ever bothering her again. Salem is trying to figure out who sent her that mysterious valentine message in the school newspaper. And Pickles has been building his greatest invention yet--and it's almost time to unveil it.
In this fourth and final installment of the School Daze series, Valentines Day is approaching. Eddie is still pining after Sunny, Sunny is trying to figure out how to take karate lessons, Salem is convinced that an older boy wants her to be his valentine, and Pickles just wants it to snow so he can use his newest creation, a super-long green sled. Add in a history project and a crazy bus driver, and you've got a recipe for lots of laughs.
It's really too bad there aren't any more books to the series, as these are some of Spinelli's best characters.
