When You Reach Me

"It's one of those all too few and far between novels that you want to reread as soon as you finish them, just to see how the author so successfully wrote a fantasy that feels completely real." - Nancy Pearl on NPR

It's tough to have a whole lot more to say about this book than what Pearl says above.  When You Reach Me is a wonderful descendant of Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time; it never once even comes close to imitation, or cheap knock-offery.  No, it's the classiest of descendants--it's an evolution.
