Like a modern-day Cyrano de Bergerac, Elisa ghostwrites love
notes for the boys in her school. But when Elisa falls for Theo
Moses, things change fast. Theo asks for verses to court the lovely
Lila--a girl known for her beauty, her popularity, and a cutting
ability to remind Elisa that she has none of these. At home,
Elisa's father, the one person she feels understands her, has left
on an extended business trip. As the days grow shorter, Elisa
worries that the increasingly urgent letters she sends her father
won't bring him home. Like the undercover agent she feels she has
become, Elisa retreats to a pond in the woods, where her talent for
ice-skating gives her the confidence to come out from under cover
and take center stage. But when Lila becomes jealous of Theo's
friendship with Elisa, her revenge nearly destroys Elisa's
ice-skating dreams and her plan to reunite her family.
National Book Award nominee Beth Kephart's first young adult
novel is a stunning debut.
