Then one day walking home from school Sal is punched by some strange kid and Miranda and Sal’s friendship starts to change. Now Miranda must walk home by herself past the odd homeless man on the corner. In addition to losing her best friend Miranda has started receiving strange cryptic notes. In them she is told things that no one else could know. Who is sending the notes and why? What do they have to do with Miranda and those around her?
This is a great mystery for any age. It would make a great read a loud for elementary and even middle school kids.
