This is a graphic novel which targets its intended audience. It even throws in some references for children of the ‘80s (Dirty Dancing, etc.).
Babymouse is excited that Valentine’s Day is almost here. Her problem is she doesn’t have a date to the dance. We get to see her musings and imaginings – which are very entertaining – along the way.
Babymouse learns that it is okay to ask a boy, that it is okay to be yourself, and more.
