Well Said: Scared

"I read the note over and over. But I have to tell you that I had no idea what any of it meant, until later. And I have to tell you something else, too: I was scared. You scared the hell out of me."
~When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

The mystery of who is sending notes to a twelve year old girl from the future made this book impossible to put down.
