Sixth grader Miranda has been best friends with Sal forever. Sal is the only person Miranda can talk to about her game show obsessed mother and who understands how she feels about her favorite book, A Wrinkle in Time. They are genuine New York City kids who know how to handle themselves.

But even city life doesn’t prepare Miranda for the weird things that start to happen. First, for no reason, a big kid comes up to Sal on the street and punches him. Now Sal won't speak to Miranda. Then Miranda's hidden front door key gets stolen and she starts receiving weird, anonymous notes. The first one says, "I am coming to save your friend's life, and my own. I ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter." Miranda just wants to ignore the note, but others start showing up and it becomes clear the writer knows things that no one should know. Should she do as the notes ask? If she doesn't, will a friend of hers really die? And what if she's too late?

Your tween and teen readers will be spellbound as they try to figure out along with Miranda what the strange notes mean and who could possibly be sending them. Ages 10 and up. 200pp.
