Spring is in full bloom now. The lilacs have come and are almost gone. Reni has been coming over to my house a lot more, which I appreciate, because I have stopped going over to the Elliots’ house altogether. I just don’t need to be there anymore.

We’re dedicated to reader privacy so we never track you.

Louise lives with her quirky grandparents, vividly depicted by Stone (The Romeo and Juliet Code, 2011) as they strive to relieve the girl’s obvious suffering. She’s given up gymnastics, turned away from most of her peers and cut herself off from the devastating truth of her past. But some friends continue to reach out to her, especially her overweight best buddy, Reni, and Reni’s tall seventh-grade brother, Henderson. After Louise discovers a note- I am your biggest fan -that seems to have been left by pizza–delivery boy Benny, she develops a shaky sort of crush on this all-but-unknown person.

Although appropriate for middle graders, the two books that I have read so far are by no means unappealing for adults. Louisa Terrace is 13, lives with her grandparents, and is going to a new school this year.

Tooth-achingly sweet and incredibly sad.

It's a story about a thirteen year old girl who has gone through a traumatic event that her mind blocked most of her treasured memories and with it, most of her former identity. Cartwheels used to be as natural as walking for Louise, but ever since that day, she quit gymnastics altogether. She used to write poetry, but now she's just bitter most of the time. This is a story about a girl who had become but a shadow of her former self and a boy who would do anything to bring the old Louise back.

For me, it's Louise's relationships with everyone that made the story. At times, it seems like the entire universe was conspiring for her memory to come back; little triggers and subtle push constructed within the sequence of plot events. There was nothing complex or even original about the plot, it's something I've read before. But I couldn't take anything away from the intricate way with which the author peeled the layers, bit by bit, to reveal what Louise's mind was shielding from her.

This was a story of a girl who had to come to terms with her mother's death, her father's abandonment, her over all lack of self-esteem. All heavy subjects, yes. But I love that the author used facile humour frequently to lure us into Louise's world. They weren't the ones that induced bouts of rip-roaring laughter but just enough to for us to see the lighter side of her life. Henderson, the boy who had harboured a crush for Louise was the icing on the cake of this heart-tugging story. He's so quirky, dorky, funny, and just plain lovable. I kept thinking, where was a boy like this when I was in seventh grade, huh? How come they don't make them like him anymore? He's the sweetest!

The Boy on Cinnamon Street is an uplifting story about a grieving family and of incomparabe friendships. I laughed, I teared, I rooted for the underdog and cheered for the innocence of romance between Thumb and Hen. It's a touching story of a girl

This book is amazing to no extent.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
The girl's name is Louise, but her friends call her Tumbleina became she is petite.
In my honest opinion, Thumb is a real brat. She does care about anything except making her "crush" on Benny real. I know, I know, her mom committed suicide, but that should only build her up, not act like she does. Another thing is that Thumb completely ignores Henderson. Henderson care about Thumb A LOT, but Thumb's to caught up in her stupid "crush" on Benny.
Even though Thumb is a brat, the book itself was amazing. The way the author wrote it was, and always will be, spectacular. Sounds exactly like how a teenager sounds.
Recap:
Thumb is a brat and a half, perfect style of writing, and good overall story.

When I read the book, I couldn't get enough of it. I would sit in bed till midnight and read. This is the best book I have ever read. It is so touching and heartbreaking at the same time. You will definitely cry, but everything will get better. When I read it in school, I would always gasp at the good parts (which was all the time). I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. I hope you love this book as much a I do.

Saying that I love books is an utterly, teeth- grinding mistake. I am a twelve year old(almost 13) and this book was amazing! It had a few story twisters that made you so involved. I LOVE comedic romances and this was PERFECT! This is definitely one of those books that you can read more than once. I would highly recommend getting this book. Especially if you are a teen or pre-teen. But it would also be very interesting for adults too. If you don't get this book it's your loss.

The characters were written in a way that young readers can relate to them. The dialogue was engaging too. It is a great story about unconditional love and healing.

This is a heart-felt book that I would recommend to any girl ages 8-12. It is about a girl named Louise who is living a tough life with her grandparents. Follow her through the ups and downs to find her secret lover who has been giving her all the clues since that pizza delivered from Benny.

My granddaughter wanted this book and I bought it for her birthday. She says it is a good book, I am glad she likes it.
Eh this book was okay-I didn't really like the characters and it got very boring at times, 3.5 star book
