Ever since she spied a falling star the night her mother died, Maddie has relied on signs and rituals to keep herself, her father, and her grandfather safe. When Maddie finds a popped balloon with an address attached, she thinks it might be some kind of sign. She begins a correspondence with 14-year-old Pearl Paradise, becoming increasingly intrigued by the aura of mystery surrounding her new friend. In her letters Pearl often uses strange words that Maddie's never heard of, and when Pearl sends a photograph of herself, it is decades old. As baffling as they are, Pearl's letters comfort Maddie, especially when her father starts dating a woman completely unlike her mother. When Maddie's father announces his engagement, Maddie retreats deeper into her emblematic world, shutting out everyone but Pearl. But when Pearl makes a startling revelation about herself, Maddie realizes the importance of accepting change rather than fearing it....

Write Me If You Dare! Reviews
Ever since her Mom died, Maddie's joys have been her Dad, her Grandfather, and everything bee (they are apiarists). A girl after my own heart, Maddie believes in signs and thinks her Mom has something to do with them, so is positive that when she hears cornflower blue eyed, 3 week old baby Kevin,vocalize following her introduction to him, that he has said her name, and she knows something great is going to happen. So, later that day, when she discovers a bright blue balloon with a note attached while walking Rupert in the woods, excitement blooms. This is a great well written story for children (but, obviously, I liked it too)about loss love and life.
This book is about a girl that finds a balloon in the woods with a note attached to it. It says write me if you dare.So she writes to the person and she writes back. Then she gets a letter back and she finds out that this girl is pretending to be 14, when she is actually 90 years old. Then towards the end of the book the girl has to go to a nursing home to see her. While she is there the lady, she is writing to, dies.
This book is about a girl named Maddie who finds a popped balloon in the forest. It has a note in it that says, "Hello out there, this balloon was launched on June 30 by Pearl Paradise... Write me if you dare!" Maddie writes back and finds out that Pearl Paradise isn't exactly who she thinks she is.
I think I read this is 2007 but it might have been 2008. I really liked this book at the time that I read it. I was heartwarmed at the ending and sad at it too. I was so excited about this book at the time that I put it on my list and gave it a good rating!
Very cute story about a girl who finds a balloon at her farm with a note attached. She writes to the address and begins a correspondence with a girl who might be a ghost... It takes place in upstate NY, very much like Ithaca (the author is from Ithaca and made up the town she lives in I believe).
This is an amazing book, genuinley heartbreaking and happy at the exact same time. When Maddie sends off the ballon at the end, i started sobbing uncontrollably. favorite.
i liked this book, so much. i liked the transition that she made.
