Love is in the air at William Gladstone Middle School, and even super-rational Emma-Jean Lazarus is carried away. Her heart flutters in the most peculiar manner whenever she sees Will Keeler. Does this mean that she should invite Will to the upcoming seventh-grade dance? Emma-Jean’s new friends say no, but how can they be sure?

And what about the mysterious note that Colleen has discovered in her locker? Finally Colleen has a boy who likes her! Just thinking about him makes Colleen feel brave and strong. And she is convinced that her genius friend Emma-Jean will find out who it is so Colleen can ask him to the dance.

But as Emma-Jean knows, nothing is simple in the seventh-grade wing, where misunder­standings lead to disaster. And this latest adventure takes Emma-Jean into the most mysterious and irrational place of all: her own heart. Download and start listening now!

    " Emma Jean is a great character and one I would love to meet. I especially love her interactions with adults (when her mother explains about spring fever/crushes/being in love it was hard not to chuckle). This sequel was just as delightful as the first. I think Tessa is going to enjoy both of these books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 1/29/2014

    " I don't know why I can't get into these books. I like them, but they make Emma Jean too obnoxiously smart and unlikable to me. I do like how the chapter some what go back and forth between she and Colleen and their thoughts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 11/6/2013

    " A cute book. The main character is very intellectual, so the book is a little less predictable than most. The clique of 7th grade friends actually get a long, which is a nice change from all the books about friends backstabbing one another in middle and high school. "

    " Our Spock-like Emma Jean doesn't really fall in love in this sequel, which was a bit disappointing. It was a very quick read, and not very satisfying. Still cute, though. "

    " Normally I do not say the second book is better but the is a first time for everything. Emma Jean does not disappoint; in fact she became even more endearing as she allows herself to explore her venerability.

    This book follows Colleen more as well which is also quite appealing. "

    " A cute easy to read follow up to Emma Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree, but not quite as good as the first. Writing is still good, but the plot was more conventional, and Emma Jean has lost some of her quirky appeal. Still quality though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/7/2010

    " This was a great follow up to the first book, I hope there is a third. Emma Jean is a unique character and she has been fun to get to know. "

    " More middle grade reading for me. Sweet. "
