    Basically, I've been doing variations of Lobster's post above for the past month or so, but didn't hit upon the right combination. Congrats to Gisela!

    Here are a few indicators of the solution I found within the book itself, along with confirming indicators from the Facebook clues:

    1) There are multiple indicators to look on the edges: "...perched as she was on the edge of the settee. She was sending me invisible panic signals" (Girls version, p32). "...we saw symbols etched vertically along the edge of the fissure: form top to bottom..." (Guys version, p41). Also searching along the shore (which is another edge) in Shorebird park.

    2) The specific start location may be indicated by the phrase "ten subs" read vertically downward on the left edge of lines 6-13 on page 32 in the girls' version, and a similar phrase "thnwstbs" on the left edge of lines 6-13 on page 34 in the boys' version ("ten subs" is disguised as "thnwstbs" by replacing the e with h, space with w, and u with t). This indicates that there are ten letters to find in each version. "subs" = submarines that can dive downwards, so it can also imply vertical descent.

    3) I interpreted the 8/31 clue "After the end of "The Pig War" on November 25th 1872 the plot truly starts to thicken" as a pointer to look just after the "ten subs" location, since according to Wikipedia, "On November 25, 1872, the Royal Marines withdrew from English Camp." So after the sub[marine]s that's where to start looking.

    Anyhow, that's a sample of things that I'd found.

    Thanar, did you find this one?

    I'm trying to finish all the clues for chapter 2 and I'm stuck on the one from May 29th. It's the alphanumeric sequence....I have solved a third of it (starting with the first letter) but can't get a handle on the rest. Can some dear soul PM me with a hint? I'm assuming there are 3 clues in this one, but maybe not? Help!! Thanks

    I haven't seen that anyone got any more from the other 2/3.
    Writing out the caesared text in rows of 3, the decoded message reads vertically in the left-hand column which reflects the solution.

    It would be good if an alternate decode gave a message in the right-hand column

    Nope, never got anything more out of that myself. If there's something there it's well hidden.

    The fact that there is a message in only one place might be a clue in itself though.
