Short & Sweet:
When You Reach Me is a book unlike any other I've read. It's a beautiful mix of realistic fiction while twisting a slight bit of something else into it. I don't want to reveal more than that. It's a mysterious novel that really makes you question what is possible and how fate can be changed and altered by our actions. The narrative is so true in this book and it really moved me. I can see why it won the Newbery.

Verdict:
A novel that you don't want to miss reading. This book moves itself into the realm of great literature between the characters, plot and mysterious overlay that Stead creates throughout it.
