In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

Mr. Hatch is a quiet, lonely man until one day he receives a huge box of chocolates with a note: "Somebody loves you." But Mr. Hatch doesn?t know who sent it (it was a "secret admirer") so he starts to "look around" to see if he can notice who it could have been. He meets his neighbors makes lots of friends (he was actually a pretty nice guy). But then, something happens!! I don't want to tell you what because it will ruin the surprise. But rest assured, this book will have you cheering at the end!

This is one of my favorite books ever! It is definitely the best Valentine's Day book ever! You need to read it. If it doesn't move you emotionally then you must be dead! Don't wait for February to roll around. Read it NOW! Right now!
