Part mystery and part science fiction (and part an homage to Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time), Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me won the Newbery Award in 2010. Sixth-grader Miranda Sinclair helps avert a tragedy by paying heed to notes delivered by a homeless man on the corner...notes describing events that will happen in the future! Set in the late '70's on the Upper West Side in New York, the author captures the place and times just right in a complex well-plotted adventure. With a VERY small initial publication, this is one of the most difficult modern Newberys to find in first edition. A Very Fine first edition in a Very Fine dust jacket.
