mystery meets history meets science fiction

The first note is unsettling; the second one unnerving. Miranda is receiving cryptic notes from someone she must know warning her that she and her friend are in danger. What is the danger? How does this person know what will happen in the future? Perhaps Miranda's love of A WRINKLE IN TIME will point readers in the right direction in this mystery set in the late 1970s with a sci-fi element as well. Stead blurs lines between and among the genres to create a novel that will challenge readers intellectually and emotionally. Trying to describe any more of the plot would either be too confusing or give away too much. Better to read this one yourself and discover the truth: books for young readers are not easy reads for the unformed mind.
