    I liked the book " When You Reach Me" by Rebecca Stead, because of the story and the genre. I also liked it because it was hard to put it down due to the mystery of the plot. The way the author wrote her details for the book was also pretty good. She made the characters very interesting. Another good thing about the book is that it was not too long or too short. The cover also looked interesting and made me want to pick up the book and see what the plot was about

    The Red Dot book I liked a lot was 'When You Reach Me'. It was really descriptive and mysterious which made me really interested in it. One of the reasons I especially liked it was because it was Realistic Fiction but there was a big mystery behind it also, so I was fully engrossed in trying to discover who sent the main character some notes and what they meant. I also really liked the main character because I felt she had an entertaining personality.

    My favorite book out of the Red Dot books was " When You Reach Me".
    I enjoyed this book because I am interested in time travel and mysteries. Miranda the main character has to solve a mysterious series of unexplained notes. I loved how the author Rebecca stead chose to write this book because it included one of the school's english class novels "A wrinkle in Time" and ties in with typical teen life. I am looking forward to read more of her books.

    The novel "When you reach me" Is really interesting. It is one of my favorite books. The book starts off with the character speaking to you which makes you feel like you play an important role in the book along with the other characters. When you read this book it is like the Author "Rebecca Stead" expects you to know the ending of the book just like she does. And as you read step by step you start to see things more clearly which is one of the things I really like about this book. When you reach the end of th4 book you say to yourself "Oh I understand" I really recommend to everyone who likes books to read this novel.

    I like the book 'When You Reach Me' as I really like the genre, because the plot events seem like they could almost happen in real life. I also liked the way the book related to the book 'A Wrinkle in Time' The book pointed out things that I didn't know such as with things about time travel. I liked how the main character wasn't the 'princess' of the story. She wasn't mean and had a funny mum who had a funny boyfriend. I loved that Marcus who punched Sal used time travel to save Sal. The plot ended on a good note because although the old man died, who is Marcus, the young boy Marcus is still alive. I think the author is very clever.

    I really like the book " When You Reach Me ", especially the main character Miranda , she is an out going and suspicious girl. I also liked the author Rebecca Stead , I loved her writing skills when she wrote this book as it has alot of creative techniques, and now I can't wait to read the other books that she wrote

    I love this book 'When You Reach Me' because it is full of imaginative ideas that go way beyond reality. It features an innocent girl called Miranda who gets confused by some anonymous notes. This book is mainly about time travel and the perks of knowing how it works. I admire the author Rebecca Stead because in the book, a mystery isn't finished and yet another one has already started. I look forward to reading more books by her as her novels are truly amazing.

    When you Reach ME -nWas a very engrossing book, the events throughout the book were so perfectly put together it felt as if it was a work of art. Rebecca Stead has put alot of effort in the book, you can tell. My favourite charecter in the book was awkwardly the laughig man; his behaviour was mysterious and makes me wonder what might happen next! The storyline is very unique and I am happy i have read this book because the imagination put int to the book is beyond my senses and this book is very special...!
