I decided I am going to start giving updates of what I am reading and book reviews. I just finished "When You Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead and later in this post I will give it a review. I am now starting "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L'engle becaise "When You Reach Me" spoiled it for me anyway. So here is the review.
"When You Reach Me" By Rebecca Stead

"When You Reach Me" is beautifully written. It has 198 pages that will suck you in no matter what. Even if you don't like it, you will not be able to stop reading. 99% gurantee of that. Rebecca Stead just has a way of sucking you in to never return again.
If you liked "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L'engle, you are sure to love this book. I haven't read "A Wrinkle in Time" but based on the references to it, you would love this book as well.
"When You Reach Me" is about a girl named Miranda who is reseving strange notes telling her that she most write a letter telling a story. Not just any story, but a true story. They tell her that someone comes to save the life of her friend and their own. The notes keep appearing and Miranda is left to wonder, but she can't tell anyone. Can Miranda figure out what she has to do before it is too late?
I loved this book. It has a bit of saddness, but it is amazing. "When You Reach Me" has a great plot line and characters. But, is time really a line? This book gives you a mix of normal life and... you will just have to see. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read and can deal with a little saddness. I wouldn't say this book is very scary but saddness can be hard for some people.
"When You Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead is a Newberry Medal Winner. Pick up this book today.
A/N: I typed this straight into the post so sorry for any typoes. The next review will be coming soon.
