There aren't a lot of romantic comedies set in fifth-grade. But that’s exactly where the BuddyLove Story begins.
First day of fifth-grade. Seele Elementary. Home of the New Braunfels Unicorns. (Yes, Unicorns.) Mrs. Lee’s homeroom.
Little Grayson LyBrand was 10 going on 30, reading Seventeen magazine and collaging fashion designs in her notebooks.
Little League Baseball All-Star, Buddy DiFonzo was also ten and he was smooth even then. And as fate would have it, Grayson LyBrand with her arsenal of Lisa Frank stickers was seated next to Buddy DiFonzo that first day of class in Mrs. Lee’s room.
For Buddy, it was love at first sight. For Grayson, she had finally found her partner in crime.
And from that point on the two were inseparable: Best friends. Goofing off in class. Cutting-up on the school bus. And when school was out, the two lived at Schlitterbahn waterpark with their friends.
As the years went by, Buddy become a fixture at the LyBrand household. So much so, Grayson’s parents nicknamed this kid who kept knocking on their front door “BuddyLove.”
