Sixth grade is a year Miranda will never forget. It is the year she witnesses her best friend Sal get punched in the stomach on their way home from school and their friendship begins to unravel. Someone steals the key to her apartment and Miranda begins to receive a series of strange notes… starting with the first one: I am coming to save your friend’s life, and my own. I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter. Miranda puzzles about the identity of the note writer as she makes new friends and works during her lunch in a local deli nearby. Gradually all the pieces come together just as Miranda is beginning to wonder if she is too late to save the mysterious note writer. (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
