But Val can't bring herself to share one special daydream: attending the Valentine's Day ball with recent transfer student Jason Talbot. Then Val's romantic dreams shatter when Petey confides in her that she has a major crush - on the same boy!
Val keeps her feelings to herself, and even promises to find out if Jason would go to the ball with Petey. But although Val's first loyalty is to Petey, she can't ignore her growing feelings for Jason. And when Jason tells Val he wants to go to the ball - with her - Val knows that this could be the toughest decision of her life.
