Free sample

Successful and celebrated entrepreneur Rajvir leads a lonely and monotonous life. Breaking out of the routine one day, he stops at a bookstore and finds a handwritten note in a book. This letter leads him to a series of other similar letters, and finally, to the person who writes them.

The letter-writer, discovers Rajvir, is a young woman, though her identity is a mystery. He soon begins a virtual relationship with her, via chat and mail. Rajvir hits upon a new business idea from his interactions with her. Enter Taashvi, who he ropes in as a partner in the new business.

Rajvir and the letter-writer relive their childhood as they converse about everything they love—music, books, the neuroscience behind music, relationships, psychology, etc. As their friendship deepens, Rajvir learns to feel safe again, to be vulnerable, to be open. As Rajvir transforms, Taashvi becomes his new friend. Soon they too discover each other, deepening the friendship between them. In the process, Taashvi inspires Rajvir to explore beyond what he has worked before.

Between Taashvi and the letter-writer, who will Rajvir choose? Does he get to meet the stranger behind the letters? Will the girl’s bitter past affect their relationship?

Will Rajvir’s story have a happy ending?

A delightful and light read, Handwritten letters in the bookstore… enlivens, even as it defines a relationship that has an old world charm with music as its leitmotif.

"Like A Wrinkle in Time (Miranda's favorite book), When You Reach Me far surpasses the usual whodunit or sci-fi adventure to become an incandescent exploration of 'life, death, and the beauty of it all.'" —The Washington Post
 
This Newbery Medal winner that has been called "smart and mesmerizing," (The New York Times) and "superb" (The Wall Street Journal) will appeal to readers of all types, especially those who are looking for a thought-provoking mystery with a mind-blowing twist.
 
Shortly after a fall-out with her best friend, sixth grader Miranda starts receiving mysterious notes, and she doesn’t know what to do. The notes tell her that she must write a letter—a true story, and that she can’t share her mission with anyone.
 
It would be easy to ignore the strange messages, except that whoever is leaving them has an uncanny ability to predict the future. If that is the case, then Miranda has a big problem—because the notes tell her that someone is going to die, and she might be too late to stop it.
