it was amazing
bookshelves: mock-newbery
Read in September, 2011

There is something magical about this sophisticated, yet straightforward book, whose action is compressed into a 36-hours period (with some flashbacks). Rocklin often points out the contrast between the real and the wished-for:

- "It was so hard to be a scientist when she kept hoping for miraculous things to happen." (p. 17)
- "Electrons buzzed, or angels giggled, depending on your theory" (p. 28)

Orange Street took me by surprise and reduced me to a puddle of tears by the end. Loved it.
