When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

Miranda witnesses her best friend, Sal get beat up by a mysterious boy for no reason. Sal doesn't want to be with Miranda since the incident. Miranda, searching for new friends finds Annemarie and Colin, who together, volunteer to work at Jimmy's sandwich shop at lunch. Then mysterious things start happening...the key to her apartment is missing, a shoe is stolen, and mysterious notes start appearing in the most unusual places..."I am coming to save your friend's life, and my own. I ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter." A story that seems to wander at first, but the end is stunning, pulling all the loose ends together.
