Miranda doesn't understand why her best friend Sal has stopped talking to her. She thinks it has something to do with his embarrassment at getting punched by a bully, and she hopes he will come around if she gives him some space. Then strange, mysterious notes begin to appear in odd places. Whoever is writing these notes knows things no one could possibly know and predicts that something horrible will soon befall a friend. Winner of the 2010 John Newbery Medal. Winner of the 2010 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. A 2010 ALA Notable Children's Book.
