2009 book 181

Rebecca Stead's First Light
Since I enjoyed When You Reach Me so much, I sought out Stead's first novel, which focuses on a young boy and girl in very different worlds. The boy lives in New York and is plagued by weird visions; the girl lives in a world under the ice and dreams of seeing the sun. The two storylines come together in a fully satisfying way, and plus there are lots of awesome dogs. Obviously it's not quite as good as When You Reach Me (but really, what is?), but it's definitely a great read. A.
