^ It happened to me in eighth grade. My best friend started dating my ex after just a few weeks and we didn't speak for a long time afterwards. But we are still friends years later and neither of us have spoken to the guy since then. Sisters before misters.
Alan seemed to go pretty overboard with the gifts, that did seem like he was, against what the narration claimed, desperate.
Otherwise a nice book, especially in the way it resolved the triangle relationship between Claudia, Stacey and Jeremy, a plotline of six books, the previous book already bringing some resolution(s) and this one continuing and further concluding, and that everyone acknowledged that Alan was acting really different and that didn't mean it wasn't genuine (Kristy was a little too hostile initially but that wasn't out-of-character or without basis), that Claudia knew this was a big change, and her and Alan was a relationship that others and she before would think was crazy, but a good change and it doesn't matter what others think.
