Valentine’s Oops by Emily Martha Sorensen, short story, 8 pages, published 2016.
When Donovan is told that his best friend’s sister is planning on making him her valentine, he panics.
This short story was a quick and fun read. It had a scattering of magic, and it was funny. It’s perfect for reading in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day.
Donovan and Junior are a bit naughty, and quite mean to their sisters! Just typical brothers. The story wasn’t really long enough to get to know the characters in depth, but I did like them. The Wilkinsons (Junior’s family) can make some unusual things happen. I would like to read more about this interesting family!
Valentine’s Oops is suitable for primary school students, but adults can also chuckle along as Donovan attempts to evade Elsie’s Valentine plans.
