Jessie and Evan Treski have waged a lemonade war, sought justice in a class trial, and even unmasked a bell thief. Now they are at opposite ends over the right to keep secrets. Evan believes some things (such as his poetry) are private. Jessie believes scandal makes good news. When anonymously sent candy hearts appear in Class 4-0, self-appointed ace reporter Jessie determines to get the scoop on class crushes.

          In the book, Jessie has to go to the bathroom. So Mrs. Overton lets her. Every time Jessie goes to the bath room, she goes to the 2nd to the last stall because people don't really use it. When she gets inside, she finds a heart on a door that say M.M + E.T. Jessie knows that E.T stands for Evan Treski, her brother. But maybe knows that M.M stands for Megan Mority.

            I have the book and I'm in chapter 5 already I can't wait to see what happens next! It is a great book I hope everyone gets a copy and reads it! I love how Jaqueline put in the definitions of each word that may be hard to read. If Jaqueline reads this and responds to me that would brighten my day. I hope you guys enjoy the book and remember Dgurlzrawsome👍🏻!

                I cant believe still Evan is a poet. For someone so... not that smart, I cant believe writing couplets come so easily! I still think Evan likes Megan and vice versa.

                      I would like to start by thanking Jacqueline Davies for writing this awesome book about the relationship about a brother and sister and capturing the real relationship.
