The Journal of Curious Letters is by James Dashner. The first book in The 13th Realty series. A fascinating series both boys and girls will enjoy. Tick Higginbottom receives a letter from a mysterious person named M.G. The letters inform the thirteen-year-old Tick that events have been set in motion that could result in the destruction of reality. Tick will receive 12 riddles and if he solves them he will be able to save the day, but he will be in danger if he attempts to solve the riddles. What will Tick do? Will he be able to solve the riddles in time? A really exciting series. The involvement of Tick's father is a nice twist since most modern books tend to make parents look either evil or incompetent.
