January #7 - WHEN YOU REACH ME

Title: When you reach me

Author: Rebecca Stead

Publisher: Wendy Lamb Books

Copyright: 2009

ISBN: 978-0-385-73742-5

Series or stand-alone: Stand-alone

Setting: New York City

1st Sentence:

So Mom got the postcard today.


Summary from the book:
As her mother prepares to be a contestant of the 1970s television game show, "The 20,000 Pyramid," a twelve-year-old New York City girl tries to make sense of a series of mysterious notes received from an anonymous source that seems to defy the laws of time and space.

This book was the Newbery Award winner for 2010 and it referenced A WRINKLE IN TIME many times.

My favorite thing about the book was how each chapter was titled and written including something from the $20,000 PYRAMID, for example THINGS YOU KEEP A SECRET.
