World within world within world...

"Hazel wished she had something in her hands to throw. She looked away and sat down.

"She opened up the new library book she'd brought for the bus ride and willed her thoughts to disappear in the pages. The girl in it was reading A Wrinkle in Time. She was best friends with a boy who lived in the apartment below. And then one day the boy stopped talking to her. Hazel closed the book."

Hazel, the main character of Breadcrumbs, reading Newbery winner When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead, in which Miranda, like Hazel, loves A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. Cute.
