The Boy on Cinnamon Street

The Boy on Cinnamon Street

by Phoebe Stone

In this affecting novel, a wounded girl must find the courage to face a painful family secret — with the help of a boy who won't give up on her.

Something is wrong with Louise. She's a natural at gymnastics, but she quit the school team. She's living with her loving grandparents, but she's trying to get her best friend's family to adopt her. And a secret admirer is sending Louise love notes, but she can't find the courage to respond. What's holding her back? Only by coming face to face with the truth about a family tragedy can Louise start to live again...and finally get the boy.

Some mature content; more suitable for older readers.
