It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem. A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal.

  • Not for adults

    By hyfgnjff
    It's quite a nice book, but surely not a fantasy for adults or teenagers. I think it might be interestingfor kids around 8-13

    By Mr Whatsit
    In my opinion, this book is excellent. If you like to read a good fantasy, you should start to read it. I would recommend reading this book to my friends because it is an exciting story. Also, the author used an excellent language and a good vocabulary. This book teaches us to never give up in stressful situations.
