" 'You and I are going to drive to Peter's house,' I shouted with ecstasy. 'You are going to zap him with a poisoned arrow and I'm going to live happily ever after!' I grabbed my car keys, flung on my black bomber jacket, and headed to my Volvo and destiny."
A.J. has two passions-photography and her crush on Peter Terris, the most popular guy in school. Enter Jonathan, a tiny cupid offering A. J. a wish in one of three categories: academics, art or romance. Without hesitating, A. J. chooses romance-despite her dream of getting into arts college. But magic can be unpredictable, and ultimately A.J. will have to decide what's worth fighting for: Peter's charmed love or the truth she can find through her camera lens and in herself.
"It's to Bauer's credit that this wacky ride through adolescent affairs of the heart never grows predictable. ...A fine romance with plenty of hitches." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Bauer's buoyant narrative will elicit chuckles as it delivers its message (thwonk!) with the accuracy of a well-aimed arrow from Cupid." (Publishers Weekly)

Imagine having a personal cupid--an actual winged being--pop into your life and offer to make your dreams come true. The catch is he can help you in only one way: artistically, academically, or romantically. That's what happens to aspiring photographer Allison Jean (A. J.) McCreary. A. J. knows she should concentrate on getting into a top-notch art school. But she's spent five torturous months obsessed with handsome hunk, Peter Terris. Just one shot from the cupid's bow and thownk, A. J. will have the undying devotion of handsome Peter...forever.About the Author:
