Like a modernday 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 Lilaa girl known for her beauty, her popularity, and a cutting ability to remind Elisa that she has none of these. At home, Elisas 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 wont bring him home. Like the undercover agent she feels she has become, Elisa retreats to a pond in the woods, where her talent for iceskating gives her the confidence to come out from under cover and take center stage. But when Lila becomes jealous of Theos friendship with Elisa, her revenge nearly destroys Elisas iceskating dreams and her plan to reunite her family. National Book Award nominee Beth Kepharts first young adult novel is a stunning debut.
