When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

I briefly wrote about this book in a post I did about time inspired books on The Hub. It won the 2010 Newbery Medal and is indeed, wonderfully written.  I admire a book with an interesting construct and this is put together wonderfully.  Miranda and Sal were friends, but then things start to fall apart.  And when Miranda receives little notes that indicate someone knows her and her friends and things that have not happened yet, she wonders what it in the world is going on.

You won’t know until the end of the book how it all fits together, and watching those pieces fall into place is really cool.  it’s also a bit of a tender, moving story.
