      The Wrinkle in Time series was one of the first series I've ever read and to this day one of my favorites. In this book Meg and Charles Wallace Murry and their friend Calvin O'Keefe follow Mrs. Whatsit and co. into space to rescue their farther, Mr. Murry from the terrible planet Camazotz. Before returning home from their successful mission they will have viewed the stars from the back of a magnificent winged centaur, discaovered that Earth is a planet shrouded by and fighting the monstrous force of the Black Thing, and resist the evil force of IT that controls Camazotz. A Wrinkle in Time is a great book, full of adventure and beautifully written.

            This book was a little hard for me to understand, but it was still an interesting read. Definetly a fantasy book, at first I thought it would be science fiction. I also thought the whole thing with the brain was extremely weird.

              this book is a roller coaster of emotions. Most of the time it is happy but suspenseful but the author mixed in the occasional sadness and heartache for the characters. I love this book!

                      This book is now my favorite book. It has the same creepy fantastical feel that a lot of 70's movies do, but it was still wonderful. Meg's problems are easy to relate to, and the other characters are the same.
