CHARACTERS When You Reach Me

Hoever is leaving them When You MOBI #224 knows things no one should know 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 lat. I almost did not read this book I knew it was targeted for a younger audience but I didn t realize just how young I kept vainly searching for it in the teenagers section where I was already a bit embarrassed to be spotted When I realized I would have to go inside the children s section at BN I wavered The little chairs The colored foam titles on the floor The stuffed animals It s all cute but could one of those books satisfy meIt probably deserves than three stars But it is hard for me to judge at twenty five years old I am not an elementary school teacher a children s librarian or a mother My days of baby sitting for 6 an hour are long gone I don t know how kids would react At eight I might have given it five stars and then complained to my mom that the rating system needed to be changed because this book deserved at least sixteen stars As an adult I am not jumping up and down but I enjoyed it It is charming The solution to the puzzle was satisfying and only modestly predictable And I was surprised to glimpse some deeper and gritty topics rehabilitation in prisons homeless people racism single mothers dead end jobs I didn t expect to encounter these in a children s book and they were artfully applied Indeed during the event Rebecca spoke about how she didn t think kids needed to be so protected Rebecca also spoke about the inspiration for the book You d think A Wrinkle in Time was the starting point Wrong The idea began as she read a New York Times article about a guy walking around Denver Colorado with amnesia When he asked for help everyone avoided the crazy man After reaching a hospital and being put under hypnosis he remembered exactly two things about himself 1 he was married to Penny and 2 they had two daughters who had both died in a car accident When they finally identified this man he had a fianc named Penny and no children CreepyShe did address the allusions to A Wrinkle in Time She included these for two reasons She wanted to describe how books can feel so personal How they can make a reader feel territorial I am guilty of this I like to pretend such and such book was written for my eyes only I will only reluctantly loan or even mention some books to others She also wanted to warn readers that there would be difficult and potentially technical topics coming ahead The third reason I discern must have been too obvious for her to mention or considered part of the second reason it served as a necessary device for explaining time travelRebecca started out as a criminal defense attorney because it was a clearer path than writing She spoke about how she kept waiting for someone to send her a Harry Potter letter You will remember when Harry receives notice that he is a wizard and has been accepted into Hogwarts How do you decide you want to become a writer It is impractical Self doubt andor egotism are occupational hazards She kept waiting for someone to tell her that she was talented enough and had permission to pursue writing This spoke to me I have been wondering lately about a letter to direct my life Did it get lost in the mail Am I going to have to take a risk without it Ekk

    I know now that if I want to be completely surprised I just have to read middle school books Ironically books for kids seem to have the most profound meanings This book is sunshine and sunset combined beautiful and heartbreaking Coincidentally I just read a sci fi story about time travel before this It was technically well explained but I don’t know why I wasn’t so impressed This adorable little book talk

    One of the most impressive things to me about middle grade literature is how much power their books can punch with so little pages It still astounds me As older people I guess we tend to over explain and over analyze Thank goodness there are authors that can still capture the feel of being a kid growing up and how simultaneously p
