When You Reach Me
Book Report By
John Newbery Medal
"I will not be myself when you reach me."
"A kidnapper Robbie b.'s dad is a prosecutor. He says the Miranda
warnings were named for a guy Mr. Miranda who committed some horrible crimes."
"My mom says each of us have a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride
on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these
invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way
But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it
from our faces."
"43. Sal not dead. The laughing man saved his life."
The winners circle

The plot of this book is really good. First, Miranda's mom get's a card from The $20,000
Pyrimad to be on the show on April 27, 1979.
Also, the mom swipes stuff from work like big
paper calender's and such.Then, Miranda and her best friend named Sal get punched by a kid. After that Sal shut Miranda out of his life.I hope you guys get this book and go read the book for yourselves.

Things You Keep in a Box
So mom got the postcard today. It's say's Congratulations
in big curly letters, and at the very top is the address of studio TV-15 on West 58 Th Street. After three years of trying, she has actually made it. She's going to be a contestant on The $20,000 Pyramid, which is hosted by Dick Clark.
On the postcard there's a list of things to bring. She needs some extra clothes in case she wins and makes it to another show,where they pretend it's the next day even though they really tape five in one afternoon. Barrett are optional, but she should definitely brings some with her. Unlike me, Mom has glossy red hair that bounced around and might obstruct America's view of her small freckled face.
And then there's the date she's supposed to show up, scrawled in blue pen on a line at the bottom of the card: April 27th 1979. Just like you said.
I checked the box under my bed, which is where I've kept your notes these past few months. There it is, in your tiny handwriting: April 27th: Studio TV-15 the words all jerky-looking.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8–Sixth-grader Miranda lives in 1978 New York City with her mother, and her life compass is Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. When she receives a series of enigmatic notes that claim to want to save her life, she comes to believe that they are from someone who knows the future. Miranda spends considerable time observing a raving vagrant who her mother calls “the laughing man” and trying to find the connection between the notes and her everyday life. Discerning readers will realize the ties between Miranda’s mystery and L’Engle’s plot, but will enjoy hints of fantasy and descriptions of middle school dynamics. Stead’s novel is as much about character as story. Miranda’s voice rings true with its faltering attempts at maturity and observation. The story builds slowly, emerging naturally from a sturdy premise. As Miranda reminisces, the time sequencing is somewhat challenging, but in an intriguing way. The setting is consistently strong. The stores and even the streets–in Miranda’s neighborhood act as physical entities and impact the plot in tangible ways. This unusual, thought-provoking mystery will appeal to several types of readers.–Caitlin Augusta, The Darien Library, CT
In the Newbery honor book When You Reach Me, by Rebecca Stead, a twevle year old girl struggles with her best friend shutting her out of his life. The story begins with Miranda's mom get a postcard to be a contestent on The $20,000 Pyrimad. Miranda and her friends are surprised to see a homeless man sleeping under a mail box, and kicking into traffic. But one day while Miranda and Sal her best friend were stopped died in there tracks by a kid named Marcus then he punched Sal in the stomach and then Sal ran off home and shut Miranda out of his life. At the end of the book there's big acident and the laughing man saved Sals life so he wouldn't be killed by a truck. I couldn't wait to see what happened next so I will recomend this book to other kids too.
