When You Reach Me - Rebecca Stead Aaaah so good! Kate, you should definitely read this.

I loved all the little details of Miranda's life. Everything was brought to life so well, and I loved Miranda herself, who read like a real kid to me. The writing didn't talk down to its audience at all, and that's awesome. It's in the tradition of the great children's books of the 60s-80s, including, yes, A Wrinkle in Time.

It's impossible to properly describe what this book is about, so I'm just going to say read it, and take the time to savor all the details.
