Four mysterious letters change Miranda’s world forever.
By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it’s safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner.
But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda’s mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note scrawled on a tiny slip of paper:
I am coming to save your friend’s life, and my own.
I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter.
The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realizes that whoever is leaving them knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she’s too late.
I LOVED this book! It was a complete mystery from beginning to end.
Here’s a list of reasons why I truly loved this book:
1. The book was told in 1st Person (Miranda’s Voice) – (I tend to like books better when told in this tense.)
2. The comparisons between this book and A Wrinkle in Time.
3. It was a complete mystery from beginning to end.
4. The book was very detailed. (I like books that give good details because it’s easier to imagine what’s really going on.)
5. There are many characters in this book but I felt they all brought something to this book. (Of course, I loved Miranda.)
6. I liked that some of this book was unrealistic such as the time travel.
7. The cover of the book. (If you read the book the cover makes sense.)
8. The chapters were short. (It felt like I was closer and closer to solving the mystery.)
Overall, I highly recommend this book especially for those who love suspense. (Eeeep, IT WAS SOOO GOOD! AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ!)
