About the Book

Andy is a happy fifth grader who is daydreaming about his upcoming tenth birthday celebration. He has decided on a swim party and is planning to invite everyone from class.

When a note from a “secret admirer” appears in his backpack, things change in a cruel and unexpected way, and Andy no longer talks about his birthday party. Andy feels very sad and alone—but he won’t for long, as his friends, family, and teachers have a big surprise.

Bullying can be incredibly painful, especially for children who are different and already feel isolated from their peers, but Andy’s dream come true proves that human kindness can heal any wound.
