Feb 17, 09

Read in February, 2009

This is my favorite middle grade novel of 2009 - well, so far anyway. A completely realistic story about family, friendship, the trauma of 6th grade life... with a nice soupçon of mind-bending time travel. The right kid will finish this and then start again immediately. In fact, I'll go right ahead and take it a step further and say that WHEN YOU REACH ME has the makings of a modern classic. I am sad that I have to wait till summer to sell it to people.

(Also, attn Booksellers, Teachers & Librarians: WRINKLE IN TIME and WHEN YOU REACH ME would be excellent to pair for a book group or something.)
