Rebecca Stead's book is deserving of a Newberry, but it isn't as good as past awards. As with any time travel book, it made my head swim a bit as I tried to sift through the "what ifs". I didn't quite understand the physics/psychology behind the time travel premise, but it made for an interesting mystery. although not too hard to figure out. I did love how it alludes to "A Wrinkle in Time" and used the "landing in the broccoli patch" as the catalyst for this story.
