BLURB:

Emma
G. is CRAZY about Aaron, lead singer of Boyz3000. Of course, she
doesn’t actually know him, but so what? Feelings are feelings. That is
until Josh appears… and he’s soooooo CUTE. Navigating her two crushes
and her middle school life, especially with eighth-grade hater Renee
around, is a challenge. And oh yeah, she’s got to earn money for an
AWESOME trip to the Bahamas to see the band of her dreams. Hello???? How
much can one thirteen-year-old take???

Excerpt <br />
<br />
“You know that thousands of girls like Aaron,” she said. “Right?” <br />
<br />
“So??” <br />
<br />
“So it’s statistically almost impossible that a pop star boy will date a fan.” <br />
<br />
I
should have known she’d say something like that. I wanted to say,
“Okay, just forget it.” But instead I said, “Whatever! I mean I just
love his singing and his writing. That’s all.” <br />
<br />
But that’s
not all. How do you change what you feel just because some stupid
statistics say you don’t have a chance? An article in Tigerbeat said
Aaron had dated a girl from his high school for three months! And she
wasn’t a star! So who knows what can happen? When you feel something,
you have to believe! Your feelings are totally crucial to your life!
When I look at Aaron’s face I get those stomach flutters! And feelings
CANNOT BE IGNORED. <br />
<br />
I started thinking about stomach
flutters instead of the essay and wondering why they happen with just
one particular boy. Why can one boy make your stomach go CRAZY???? <br />
<br />
I called my cousin Elyse to ask what she thought because she’s older and experienced. <br />
<br />
“No one really knows,” she said. “That feeling just hits you. But you want to make sure that the boy you like, likes you back.” <br />
<br />
“How can you tell?” <br />
<br />
“Well,”
she said after thinking for a minute, “sometimes boys don’t want you to
know they like you. So they look at you like they are trying to look
like they aren’t looking at you or liking you, but really, they are. <br />
