My book this week is Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone.

I shouldn’t be reading the notes.

Hailey trims a rose and passes it to me. As I attach the note to the stem with sparkly pink ribbon, I read it. I can’t help it. This one’s a little over-the-top, but it’s still sweet. I give it to Olivia and she drops it in the classroom-specific bucket.

“No way! You guys…” Olivia snorts, laughing hard as she turns the card over in her hand. I guess she’s reading them, too. “I can’t tell who wrote this but…poor boy. This is so cheesy.”

My initial reactions: 
– This reminds me of cupid day from Before I Fall.
– I want to go read more of this book right now. I haven’t read anything but these snippets, but I am anxious to get into this book. I think it’s going to be a really quick read. I need that right now.
– The punctuation is weird. This was hard to type out.
Friday 56:
Everyone stands, clapping and cheering, and Sydney holds her skirt to one side and curtsies. Then she throws her arms up in the air and her head back and yells, “Yes! Stick me!”
