Quan m'atrapis (L'ESPARVER)

Quan m'atrapis (L'ESPARVER) - Rebecca Stead;Anna Mauri Batlle A tender story about time-travel and the relationships of a young girl in a big city with lots of misteries.

I had never heard of this book when I grabbed it at my local bookstore... and it was not in the children's section. The cover doesn't look childish, either. So when I began this book I didn't know what to expect.
It has been a cute suprise, a warmhearted plot that let me feel like a child with lots to discover. It was later that I saw the editorial's brand is for young people... but I was already catched by the story.

Though I like the book, even if I know that is for children, I couldn't totally understand the 5 stars ratings... maybe now I need to discover Madeleine L'Engle's "A Wrinkle in Time" to rethink the starring of this one.
