When You Reach Me

I was a big fan of When You Reach Me. [Full disclosure: I do not know the author and I got the book at the library.] I ended up reading the book in a single gulp one evening when I just planned to read a few chapters. [Full disclosure #2: one reason I love YA fiction is that many of the books are short enough to allow you to do that.]

Here’s a real treat for those of you who read the book: author Rebecca Stead explains where the book came from and how she was influenced by A Wrinkle in Time. I was especially interested in how she re-read the book twice, each time looking at it through the eyes of a different character.

And you can read the interview here.
