Candice brought the book to her nose--it somehow still carried that wonderful new-book smell. She cracked it open, and a piece of paper fell out and floated to the ground.

Candice picked it up, thinking it was just a random sheet that had been used as a bookmark long ago. Then she saw a small note written on the back of the paper.

Find the path. Solve the puzzle.

It was her grandmotherâe(tm)s handwriting--swirling loops in dark blue ink.

Candice unfolded the paper and hesitated. The letter was addressed to her grandmother; it seemed intrusive to read it. She almost placed it back between the pages of the book.
Almost.

But she was a reader. Readers read.

And so, Candice read the letter.
