Ghost Letters

Ghost Letters by Stephen Alter
When two modern-day kids discover a grotesque secret in an abandoned mailbox, they have no idea they are about to be drawn into a mystery that began on the other side of the world. Through the help of an English genie and a phantom postman, the two children begin to communicate with a young calligrapher’s apprentice who lived 125 years ago in a small, Himalayan village. Writing back and forth, across continents and centuries, the three children eventually realize the possibility of changing history by delivering three letters that were never received.

This is another one I had trouble finishing. It is hard to stick with at the beginning as the story jumps around from chapter to chapter and you really don't know what is going on. I did like the ending though. I would give it 2 1/2**.
