When the magic wind turns fourth-grader Katie, who dislikes the "mushy gushy stuff" of Valentine's Day, into a candy store owner, she decides to write her own "love messages" on the candy hearts.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"So are you playing goalie at your soccer game today?" Katie Carew asked her best friend Jeremy Fox. They were walking home from school together after band practice on Monday afternoon.

Jeremy didn't answer Katie. Instead he dropped his head and ducked behind her. "Hide me!" he whispered.

"From what?" Katie asked him.

Becky. She's coming this way."

Everyone in the fourth grade knew that Becky Stern had a crush on Jeremy. Jeremy didn't like Becky at all. But this was the first time he'd ever actually hidden from her.

Katie giggled. "Oh, come on. She's not that bad."

Back Cover:
Can one little wish mess up the life of a nice, ordinary kid? Sure can!

It's almost Valentine's Day, and the fourth grade is really in the holiday spirit. Except for Katie, that is! She's sick of mushy gushy stuff. But when she switcheroos into the local candy store owner, Katie messes up all the messages on the candy hearts. Will Valentine's Day be ruined? Or will Katie have a change of heart and save the day?
