"In this modern-day Cyrano tale, Elisa, a teenage misfit, ghostwrites ardent notes for lovelorn boys in her high school. As she struggles with rejection by her best friend and with family heartaches, she begins to experience an unexpected interest in Theo, a sensitive swain who has successfully captured the heart of the school's quintessential "mean girl," thanks to Elisa's romantic offerings. Jennifer Ikeda skillfully captures Elisa's questioning, wistfulness, and insecurity. As the story continues, the listener can hear Elisa's growing confidence and sense of self through Ikeda's perceptive characterization. This vivid novel takes on an enhanced dimension when read aloud. M.H.N. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
