Madison participated in Dunlap Public Library's February Young Author Club for 3-5 graders. In honor of Valentine's Day, she wrote this love story for the blog.
"I love him, but did you see his nose? It's huge! I couldn't stop staring at it. He's so dreamy, with emerald green eyes and spiky black hair. But again, his nose!" Melissa said tiredly. "I can't stop thinking about him. It's got to be a genetic disorder."
