We have a review of “When you reach me” on this site already completed by my eleven year old, Broadway.
Due to Broadway’s extreme excitement about this story, Imagineer, my 9 year old daughter, wanted to read the book as soon as possible.
She just finished it today and I sat down with her for an interview.
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A. The book “When You Reach Me,” is a book about a girl named Miranda, and her friends, Sal, Annemarie, Colin, and this Wacko Man, or Marcus. Miranda keeps getting these notes— well only 4. At the starting of the notes she didn’t know who the person was that kept writing notes. Later on, she figures out “Time travel is possible.”
Q. Describe the main character
A. The main character is Miranda. She lives in New York and is in 6th grade. She is short.
Q. What is your most favorite scene in the book?
A. My favorite scene in the book was when her mom almost won $20,000 on the show $20,000 pyramid.
Q. What was the worst scene in the book?
A. The worst scene in the book like always…..when I finished it!
Q. Would you recommend this book to your friends?
A.Yes. I would recommend this book to my friends because it is mysterious and shocking.
As I said after Broadway finished this book, I have to read this one very soon. From both of my daughters’ excitement and wonder with this book, I’m very intrigued.
