Her best friend is Tara, from Laos. Both girls are being tormented by the mysterious message writer who progresses from name-calling, chalk-scribbled writings on the sidewalks in front of the girls homes to threats and thefts.

Told by Naomi, the story of prejudice unfolds in preteen tempo and vocabulary. Naiomis views of the world and how the world views her will be parallel to the readers. As Naomi and Tara attempt to discover the message writers identity, their relationships with schoolmates are explored and insightful discoveries are made.

Naomi also comes to terms with herself about her mothers boyfriend, who is a puppeteer, and her birthfathers new wife, who is pregnant. She gains realistic perception about her place in both parents households. With a nod to Hamlet, a puppet show reenacting the mystery writers deeds is written by the girls and staged in school, with the help of Naomis new dad to be. Audience reactions shed light on the mystery.
