I am a huge fan of Rebecca Stead’s When You Reach Me (see my NYT review and this post as to why) and am very happy to report that her new Liar & Spy is just as good. I read it a while ago, but because I reviewed it professionally only gave it a brief mention here. Yesterday I learned that my Horn Book starred review was made available to Random House and so, while I can’t put the whole thing here (be sure to keep an eye out for it in September), I will give you the quote from it that they are using:
Starred Review, The Horn Book, September/October, 2012:
“Stead’s spare and elegant prose, compassionate insight into the lives of young people, wry sense of humor, deft plotting, and ability to present complex ideas in an accessible and intriguing way make this much more than a mystery with a twist.”

I really loved this one too; No Crystal Stair is really the only book I’ve read so far this year that can top Liar & Spy.
