Rediscover one of the most beloved children's books of all time: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle:

Meg Murray, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. He claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a "tesseract," which, if you didn't know, is a wrinkle in time.

Meg's father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father?

    Hmmm I like the book so magical! I thought it would be better if it's not so random. Other than that the book deserves 3 stars!! 🤗

        Not very good , it was very confusing. I couldn't quite understand it because the book didn't make any sense.

                This book is so heartwarming! It is filled with imaginary people and planets. I liked this book so much, I bought it myself! My favorite character is Charles. He is so caring and delicate! You should read this book!

                      This book is about a girl named Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin in their journey through space to find her long lost father. Through out they encounter darkness, light, friendship, and a tad bit of romance. A great book to be reading. It's awesome. I love it.
