When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
When You Reach Me

OregonKali, January 2, 2012

One of the best young adult or children's books I have read since I was in fact a young adult. A step back to what young adult writing used to be, with intelligent, in depth characters, set in a city full of flavor in a time since past, and an intriguing plot that hinges on the brink of being magical. Stead manages to bring in the reader to the point that no detail is missed and the reader's belief in and ability to identify with the characters comes easily.

Not only does it entertain but it reminds us of a time where kids had free roam of neighborhoods, interacted with their surroundings without supervision, valued the true meaning of friendship and learned lessons through their own adventures. A beautiful and freeing book for all ages.
