A story about a wounded girl and the boy who won't give up on her.

Seventh grader Louise should be the captain of her school's gymnastics team—but she isn't. She's fun and cute and should have lots of friends—but she doesn't. And there's a dreamy boy who has a crush on her—but somehow they never connect. Louise has everything going for her—so what is it that's holding her back?

Phoebe Stone tells the winning story of the spring when seventh grader Louise Terrace wakes up, finds the courage to confront the painful family secret she's hiding from—and finally gets the boy.
