Title: When You Reach Me
Author: Rebecca Stead
Rating: 5 stars
I joined the ranks of people who fell in love with this book.
Found it on a list of books on Pinterest, read a few reviews and decided to give it a try. Ended reading all in less than 8 hours, with pauses.
I guess I can consider myself lucky, every single book aimed at middle graders and up I’ve read recently have been great and deserved a 5 star rating.
When You Reach Me is sweet, fun, touching, engaging and with a great mystery in the form or little notes from some time traveler.
We see the main character, a young girl named Miranda, learning and maturing, making mistakes, living an adventure, finding new friends, expanding her horizon. We see Miranda growing up and it’s a nice thing to witness.
Even though its public is obviously preteen, I found it highly enjoyable.
This is a great read, no matter your age.
