Miranda is an ordinary sixth grader, until she starts receiving mysterious messages from somebody who 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.
For ages approx 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. 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. Until the final note makes her think she's too late. So Mom got the postcard today. After three years of trying, she has actually made it.
On the postcard there's a list of things to bring. She needs some extra clothes in case she wins and makes it to another show, where they pretend it's the next day even though they really tape five in one afternoon. Barrettes are optional, but she should definitely bring some with her.
Unlike me, Mom has glossy red hair that bounces around and might obstruct America's view of her small freckled face.
And then there's the date she's supposed to show up, scrawled in blue pen on a line at the bottom of the card: April 27, Just like you said. I check the box under my bed, which is where I've kept your notes these past few months.
There it is, in your tiny handwriting: April Download the teacher's guide in PDF. This is an intellectual mystery of just exactly the type I adore. I love it. I highly recommend this book to any child who loves to ask questions or any grownup who still believes in his heart of hearts that the real world is magic Full Review words.

Write your own review! If I were in a dark, windowless train with no bumps that was going in one direction at a constant speed, then I would think I was standing still, but my sister on the train platform would see me speeding away from her. According to Einstein, if I then looked out the window, I would have every right to believe, in fact, that the world was speeding away behind me while I stood still.
My sister, of course, would also be right that she was standing still.
