2009 book 175

Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me
Just when I was getting disillusioned with all my crappy recent reading, the library got this book for me. And it was AMAZING. It's about a twelve-year-old girl in the late 70s who's obsessed w/ A Wrinkle in Time (and rightly so), and then her best friend stops hanging out with her, and she starts getting mysterious and somewhat disturbing notes, and makes some new friends, and things happen in a great way. I did guess part of the end but that didn't stop me from crying and crying and crying about it. This book is so good--go read it right now. A+.

I borrowed this from your house last night when I went to feed JB. Fell asleep reading it, and picked it right up again after my first cup of coffee, and couldn't put it down/shower/go to work until I was finished! LOVED it. I cried and cried too.
