Seventies nostalgia: a Dick Clark who never ages – the $20,000 Pyramid – Bit-O-Honey candy that breaks your teeth – Charlie’s Angels (the original ones)…
Rebecca Stead’s Newberry Award winning young adult book, When You Reach Me, is a quick read – mysterious, fun, and validating.
With references to Madeleine Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, Stead creates a coming of age story that might bring back some life-turning moments of your own. And make you wonder, what if you could go back and do it again?
