BOOK REVIEW: When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead


Title: When You Reach Me

Author: Rebecca Stead

Book Length (Audiobook): 4 hours 19 mins

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Genre: Fiction, Children’s Fiction, Mystery, Science Fiction, Time Travel


Brief Summary of the Plot from Goodreads: “Miranda is an ordinary sixth grader, until she starts receiving mysterious messages from somebody who knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she’s too late.”

The Writing: Since this book was for middle school children, the book was very easy to read, and I was able to finish it pretty quickly.

The Audiobook Recording: Nothing of note to report.

Expectations/Recommendations: I only read this book to fulfill the requirement in my reading challenge “52 books in 52 weeks” to read a children’s book. I was not expecting much, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Miranda is a devout reader of Madeleine L’Engle’s book, A Wrinkle in Time, and has read the book several times. When You Reach Me has a very similar theme running through out the book. If you liked A Wrinkle in Time, then you will definitely like this book too.
