Really liked this book . The quirky Grandparents were so cute and funny and Louise's friend Henderson was interesting and dorky but so caring also. Good story and very enjoyable .

I guess i liked this book but it really frustrated me how i figured out who the sender was by page 25 but the characters didn't figure it out until there were only 25 pages left of the book

I really enjoyed this book all the Characters were so like able and realistic. I loved the dorky goofy grandparents. Most readers over a certain age will be able to figure out who the actual note sender is. However this is still a very good book.Nice mix of funny and sad.

Seventh grader Louise Terrace used to be a happy girl. She used to have friends, do gymnastics, and live with her parents in a cute house on Cinnamon Street. Now she has a new name, lives with her grandparents in another part of town, doesn't do gymnastics anymore, and can't seem to remember the event that led to these changes. She has two new friends though, brother and sister Henderson and Reni. When a secret admirer starts to leave messages for Louise, she and Reni are off on the hunt of all time to figure out who it could be. Even though part of Louise is frozen nearly solid, the change in seasons and the possibility of having a date for the Spring Fling dance could be just what she needs to open up enough to finally face the event that broke her family.
