Gripping

This twisty, fascinating sci-fi novel for young adults absolutely deserved its Newberry Medal. The life of Miranda, the protagonist, begins to take some strange turns when her best friend is randomly attacked in the street. Along with his subsequent strange behavior, Miranda also begins to receive very strange notes that indicate that the writer knows the future.
This book was pitch-perfect in its observations of kids who are coming to recognize the difficulties in friendships as something beyond black and white, her fault/his fault issues. At its resolution, it also has something very weighty to say about personal responsibility and self-sacrifice, and it says it in the most poignant and haunting way it possibly could. It has stuck with me since finishing the book in that I can still get shivers just contemplating the book's denouement.
Definitely pick up this book, whether you are a young adult, or older.
