Overview

When her best friend, Wendy Choy, qualifies to compete in an international piano competition in Oxford, England, irrepressible Gilda Joyce finds a way to get an invitation herself—as a page-turner. Wendy settles into an exhausting practice schedule, made worse by strange nightmares, while Gilda finds herself falling in love with a British boy. But when Wendy discovers a ghostly message written in the frost on her window, Gilda realizes her friend’s life could be in danger, and the key to solving the mystery may be in learning the truth behind the untimely death of a previous piano virtuoso.

When Gilda's best afriend Wendy is chosen to go to England for a piano competition, Gilda decides she has to go. She gets an all expenses paid trip as Wendy's page turner. Once there strange things begin to happen. Taro cards are beggining to show up around the competitors. If that isn't enough Wendy is having difficulty sleeping and she keeps hearing creepy music. In this book Gilda find her first love, Julian. She must let the practices suffer so that she can help solve this mystery. I enjoyed this book immensly We get to see Gilda's best friend Wendy in a differently light. She played a larger role in this book. She isn't as colorful as Gilda and maybe that is why they are best friends. It all balances out.

Gilda and her friend, Wendy, are off on another adventure. This time they are going to England where Wendy is in an International Piano Competition. Mysterious tarot cards begin appearing among the competitors. Gilda and Wendy start seeing ghosts and Wendy hears strange music playing. The girls begin investigating and find a lost piece of music that was written by a young composer but never was performed because he was killed. Wendy decides she must play the composition for the competition. Gilda meets one of the competitors and falls in love with her first kiss. Girls would probably like this book better than boys. Gilda is always funny and fun-loving.

I love this series. Gilda is my kind of gal. I love the fact that she doesn't think that any of her zany schemes are abnormal. I feel that Jennifer Allison has really captured her personality perfectly.
