Have a Heart, Cupid Delaney by Ellen Leroe

There are many stories in which an adolescent character comes into contact with a fairy, an angel, or a cupid who grants wishes - or at least attempts to do so. The results can be disastrous, hilarious, or both.

Of all of the books I've read that deal with cupids, Have a Heart, Cupid Delaney by Ellen Leroe is my absolute favorite. To earn her wings, a female cupid must observe four high school students on Earth. Delaney is assigned to make two pairs - each with one popular kid and one not-so-popular kid. Though she is determined to earn her wings and show her superiors that she can do her job, Cupid Delaney really messes up the plans when she herself falls in love!

I read Have a Heart, Cupid Delaney over and over again when I was in elementary school. Years later, I found the sequel, Meet Your Match, Cupid Delaney. Written by the same author and in the same vein, it continues Delaney's story and will appeal to fans of the original.

This book would have made for a super cute television movie. In fact, those who enjoyed the short-lived television series Cupid with Jeremy Piven or the Mickey Mouse Club sponsored television series Teen Angel with Jason Priestley and Renée O'Connor or Teen Angel Returns with Robyn Lively will also like this book.

Have a Heart, Cupid Delaney is cute, funny, and fun. Cupid Delaney's escapades are good-natured and Leroe's writing is witty. Find a copy and give it to someone for Valentine's Day!
