The Boy on Cinnamon Street by Phoebe Stone
Seventh grader Louise Terrace has a secret admirer. He sends her notes when she needs cheering up, and draws chalk hearts on the sidewalk outside her apartment. It should be the perfect romance...but somehow they never meet up. It's the same with gymnastics. Louise is a natural champion. She can do cartwheels all day long and even backflips on the balance beam. She should be captain of the school team...but somehow it doesn't work out. There's something holding Louise back, a family secret from her past so heartbreaking that it's got her frozen inside. And it's going to take a miraculous spring to thaw her out again.
