When You Reach Me Chapter 49 Summary

Things You Protect

  • It turns out that Belle is the one that called the police on Marcus. Mom gets things sorted out, though, and they get a statement from Sal. Case closed.
  • Time passes: Annemarie has her birthday party. Marcus waves hello sometimes. Miranda kisses Colin some more, and Sal's cast comes off.
  • Miranda tries to forget about the Laughing Man, but the day the postcard came, she knew she couldn't forget it.
  • That's why she's been doing all the thinking. Should she write the letter, even though the Laughing Man is dead? Maybe if she writes the letter, she can forget about "you."
