I would've never picked up this book accept for a few agents that raved about the voice. It is set in the late 70's and follows a 12-yr-old girl that is receiving secret notes about something that is going to happen to one of her friends in the future. It's a throw-back to A Wrinkle in Time, and I was surprised at how much I liked it. Great balance between plot and characters and it read quickly but it wasn't a heart-pounding page turner. The end was predictable but maybe not for a middle-grader. I would recommend it to anyone who likes MG.
