A wonderful short read. Yes it is juvenile fiction, but read and enjoy the wonderful characters, plotting, time travel and great writing.
Thanks Terri for the suggestion. ( )

I love it when I find a book I can't put down. I read this in one sitting and it went by so fast, but in a good way, like I'm excited to read it again. It's pretty difficult to describe the plot, so I'll just say that it's exceptionally well written, moves at a great pace, and the characters leap off the page.

It also defies genre. I'd call it a mystery because Miranda, the 6th grade protagonist, tells the story as she's trying to figure it out, so the reader is there trying to figure it out with her.

I'd also say it's everyday life because it's about friendships, families, walking home from school past a crazy person, just normal stuff that happens to kids.

And it's sci-fi because there is an element of time travel (the good "always already happened" time travel--I don't like it when time travel can change the past).

It's also kind of historical fiction for young readers because it takes place in New York City in 1978, when the streets were not very safe and the $20,000 Pyramid was a super hot game show (as a great touch, the chapters have titles like categories in the Pyramid).

I think this is a strong Newbery contender for 2010. ( )

This book was amazing and surprising. I loved it very much. Not only does it hold so much depth and emotion, its story was told wonderfully. Never a dull moment throughout the book!

It's books like this one that our you should be reading. It not only teaches them the beauty of language, but reinforces a love for reading. ( )

One of the best books I've read in a long time. Time travel is my favorite! ( )

This book has a very nice climax when given. Exciting and has much significance to it. Symbolic and wonderful.

...a story in which characters really come alive during those few months we spend with them, when their lives are shaped for ever.
 
In this taut novel, every word, every sentence, has meaning and substance. A hybrid of genres, it is a complex mystery, a work of historical fiction, a school story and one of friendship, with a leitmotif of time travel running through it. Most of all the novel is a thrilling puzzle. Stead piles up clues on the way to a moment of intense drama, after which it is pretty much impossible to stop reading until the last page.
 
Eventually and improbably, these strands converge to form a thought-provoking whole. Stead ('First Light') accomplishes this by making every detail count, including Mirandas name, her hobby of knot tying and her favorite book, Madeleine LEngles 'A Wrinkle in Time'. Its easy to imagine readers studying Mirandas story as many times as shes read LEngles, and spending hours pondering the provocative questions it raises.

Stead's novel is as much about character as story. Miranda's voice rings true with its faltering attempts at maturity and observation. The story builds slowly, emerging naturally from a sturdy premise. As Miranda reminisces, the time sequencing is somewhat challenging, but in an intriguing way. The setting is consistently strong. The stores and even the streets–in Miranda's neighborhood act as physical entities and impact the plot in tangible ways. This unusual, thought-provoking mystery will appeal to several types of readers.

"It's the jumping, from one diamond to the next, that we call time, but like I said, time doesn't really exist. Like that girl just said, a diamond is a moment, and all the diamonds on the ring are happening at the same time. It's like having a drawer full of pictures."
