Miranda, a sixth grade girl living in New York City, begins to receive cryptic messages hidden in odd places.  These notes are terrifying to her because they are asking her to disclose secret information and write a letter to the mystery sender in order to save her friend’s life.  They also include information about events that have not taken place yet.  Miranda must solve this mystery before it’s too late, but how?

Although this book is written at a level that many of our students could read, the plot is a bit complicated, so I’d only advise it for a student with strong comprehension skills.  It takes a while to process the story, even after the book is finished.
