Love Letters to a Panini – Synopsis
Most girls would be happy to receive love letters, even from anonymous admirers.
But not Katie.
She opened her locker and saw a white envelope, her name spelled in individual letters cut out from a magazine.
“Like a ransom note,” she thought.
Katie put it back and closed her locker. But Athena was adamant: they had to see what’s inside.
They opened the letter and saw the image of a naked man. Kneeling and with arms raised, he seemed to be worshipping an altar with five huge, glowing candles.
“It’s not occult,” Athena explained. “It’s the Praying Nudist, the unofficial logo of Dash, a band my dad loves.”
At the back of the image, they saw the cryptic message:
“Watching you from afar. Dazzled by your brightness.”
They quickly learned that the words came from one of the band’s songs, a pattern that would be repeated in the coming weeks. Similar letters– all related to a recent event in Katie’s life.
But who could the admirer be? Is it Barry the class jock? Alvis the class nerd? Doody the class playboy? Or is it a girl she’d been close to? It could be anybody.
And why would anyone be called a Panini?
