The notes, whose writer claims to be coming to Miranda's time to save a life, offer three signs of the truth of the messages. As the plot develops, the proofs come true, and Miranda is intrigued.
Miranda and her new friends, Annemarie and Colin find a sandwich shop on the corner, wondering if they can get a job there.
The owner, Jimmy, agrees, but he does not wish to pay them with money; instead he gives them a free pop and a sandwich each day. Miranda, Annemarie, and Colin discover a Fred Flintstone bank in the back of sandwich shop.
Colin, wanting to see more of the bank, is pulled way by Annemarie insisting that Jimmy could find them. The next day, Jimmy fires the three workers, thinking that one of them stole the Flintstone bank, when the laughing man actually stole it. The workers write a card, give it to Jimmy and insist that they did not steal the bank. Jimmy believes them and let them work at the sandwich shop.
He then tells them that he figured out who stole the bank.
He thinks that it is Julia, a classmate in their class, and a best friend to Annemarie. He thinks she did it because she is African American. This upsets Annemarie greatly and she immediately quits her job. At school, Julia starts shouting at Miranda for letting Annemarie drink soda and eat sandwiches, saying that because Annemarie is epileptic she has to eat a special diet.
Miranda explains that she didn't know that. Colin is later hanging out with Sal. Colin then asks Miranda if she wants to hang out. Miranda declines, saying that her mom is sick. Later on, someone taps on her door which scares her because she doesn't know anyone that knocks like that. She looks though the peep hole and sees Colin. She opens the door and he looks at her then kisses her.
She then kisses him back. Colin smiles and then runs off. In a later scene, Marcus encounters Sal. Marcus wants to apologize for his misbehavior, and chases Sal when he flees. Sal runs onto a street right ahead of an oncoming truck. Before the truck can hit Sal, the laughing man kicks Sal out of the way, sacrificing his own life for Sal's.

Miranda finds the fourth note in Richard's shoe and learns that the laughing man came from the future to save Sal's life. The note asks Miranda to prepare a chronicle of recent events and deliver it by hand, but she does not know who to give it to. In hopes of winning the money and having a better life, Miranda and her mom's boyfriend Richard prep her for the show.
Miranda and Sal are friends again. While her mother is on-stage, Miranda reminisces about a conversation with Marcus about how no one would recognize a time-traveler from a different age. She suddenly realizes that the laughing man is an older incarnation of Marcus, who has come from the future to save Sal's life.
He needed to deliver the notes to the young Marcus through Miranda. Later on Miranda goes to the mailbox the laughing man Marcus slept under, where she finds a picture of an older version of Julia smiling happily. The novel ends as Miranda reflects on the events in an epilogue.
