    DESCRIPTION Laurie Friedman
    April has a New Year's resolution to start the year off right—get back together with sweet, funny Billy. They've been friends forever, her family loves him, and he's even class president this year. But she keeps getting stuck on several questions: What does Billy think about her? What's going on between Billy and their friend Brynn? And why does she feel she needs to keep her friendship with Matt Parker, her hot neighbor, a secret? When Cupid throws April a curve ball, she's faced with a new problem: how does a girl follow her heart when old friendships, new friendships, and her family's trust are on the line?

    Images of the Interactive Book in Action
    Lerner Interactive Books introduce students to knowledge areas in core grade-level curriculum in an engaging format. With titles that span curriculum themes from pre-K - 5th grade, Lerner Interactive Books give readers a digital option for reading that allows them to read, hear, and interact in a way that will engage and motivate them to read more and more often. It's a fast path to deepening students' love of reading and learning.
    From the opening page, audio and visual cues and easy-to-use tools help guide your students through the story. As the story begins, words are highlighted while they're read aloud. This type of word distinction better supports letter and word recognition skills, and keeps kids focused on the structure of how to read.
