Claire’s Top Ten Favorite Female Time Travelers #5 Miranda Sinclair
September 21, 2015
Rewind Files author Claire Willett shares a list of her favorite chrono-jumping ladies from movies, books and television!
5. Miranda Sinclair (from When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead)
Sixth-grader Miranda starts getting anonymous letters from someone who appears to know all about her life, including things that haven’t happened yet. The first one says “I am coming to save your friend’s life, and my own,” and they just get more cryptic from there. The central mystery is insanely compelling (I plowed through the book in one sitting to find out what happened) but the real magic is Miranda’s narrative voice and the rich details of her life – her relationship with her best friend, her mom’s obsession with The $25,000 Pyramid, and all the colorful characters that populate her New York.
