Broadway, my 11 year old daughter, finished this book last weekend. She came bounding down the stairs proclaiming “this was the best book she has ever read.” She continued to proclaim this for the next few days.
We checked this out on Friday evening and she finished it by the next morning.
She simply could not put it down.
It really was wonderful to hear her gushing about the story.
I sat down with Broadway today for an interview about the best book she has ever read.
As you will see, she does not go into great detail about the story as she did not want to give anything away. She was very mysterious about this one, which makes me want to read it even more. 🙂
Here you go…..
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A.This is VERY well detailed, entertaining, and amusing. The book is about a girl who lived in New York City and is getting these strange letters from this person she doesn’t know. So, she tries thinking about who this person is that she doesn’t know. She tries to solve the mystery and in the meantime, meets two new best friends.
I could read this book over and over and over and over and over AND over!! I loved it soooooo much!! I wish Rebecca Stead would write a sequel to this so I could continue reading!! This is one of my favorite books I have ever read!! Everyone would love it!!
Q. Describe the main character
A. The main character in the book is Miranda. Miranda is in sixth grade, her mother is dating a man named Richard (aka Mr. Perfect) and her mom is practicing for a game show. Miranda lives in New York and has two best friends, Annemarie and Colin. Secretly, she has a crush on Colin. Miranda is a great character in the book.

If she liked that one, try “Liar and Spy” by the same author. I read it recently–excellent!
OKay, after reading Imagineer’s review of this book, and now after reading Broadway’s review, the combination of the two reviews has caused me to move this book to the TOP of my reading list. It will be the next book I read. 🙂

I know, I still have to read this one. Its sitting on my coffee table staring at me. I wish there were 30 hours in each day and I could dedicate 4 of those hours to reading!
I just commented on Imagineer’s review of this book too. I just finished it and it was indeed intriguing. Definitely makes me think of time travel, which I would often day dream about. I checked this out at the library so that I can minimize my book collection that is leaving me with little room for myself in my room !
