You can’t help but crush on this start to a tween series full of drama and romance!

Twelve-year-old Lauren Silver is ready to hit the beach for her annual family vacation. Aside from the sun and sand, she’s especially thrilled to be reunited with her gorgeous summer crush, Charlie Anderson. Sure, she’s only spoken to him once, for exactly thirteen seconds, but she knows they are meant to be together. She’s even spent all year developing The Love Plan, a foolproof way to get to know Charlie and have him fall for her.

But plans don’t always work out, which Lauren learns when she finds out a friend from school, Chrissy Porter, will be joining her family on their vacation. As if having to make Chrissy part of The Love Plan isn’t bad enough, Lauren then has to face a very tough reality of crushes: Sometimes they are not mutual. And sometimes, when fate is playing a really mean trick on you, the object of your crush ends up crushing on your friend Chrissy.

Can Lauren survive her beach vacation? And more importantly, can she survive her first crush?

She had come to rely on the monthly tests in her

magazine or guidance on all things related toCharlie Anderson. When this month’s issue came out andLauren saw the title o the quiz, she hoped deep downthat it was a sign. Now that she’d taken—and aced—thetest, she
knew
it was a sign.Was Charlie Anderson her soul mate? Yes he was.She lay back on her bed and whispered his name outloud, slowly, dreamily—Charlie Anderson. It had such aperect sound to it. The “ch” o Charlie, then the “-arlie,”the three-syllable last name a lilting triplet, the rst andlast names just right together. Like a little song. It was theperect name or the perect boy.In the margin o her magazine she doodled in largeloopy letters. “Lauren Anderson.” Then: “Lauren &Charlie.” “Charlie & Lauren.” They sounded like acouple. Their names just t together so perectly. As iit was meant to be. Because, o course, it was. Lauren& Charlie TLF. True Love Forever.She stood up and moved to her desk and opened thedrawer, then pulled out the oversize pink index card thatwas ace down and shoved toward the back. She turnedit over and studied it.
