I love this book

Ever since her dad went missing, Meg has had a new life. People tease her and her youngest brother Charles, she stands up for her family, and she gets in trouble. This routine made Meg realize that she needs her dad back. So when her smart brother Charles meets an old lady named Mrs. Which, she knows it's her chance to get him back. 2 more old ladies join them, and with Meg, Charles, the three old ladies, and a random kid named Calvin head on an adventure to find truth, reality, and Meg's dad. When they realize they will face serious danger to get Mr. Murry back, their goal changes: No matter what, EVERYONE is to be brought back safely, including Charles, who has a strange connection with the Dark Thing that rules overhead. Will Meg fulfill her dream and get her dad back, or will dark forces stop her from getting there? I rate this book 4 stars for the mystery and love and action that took place that made this book truly amazing! I recommend this book to everyone, because I'm sure you'll like it!

I love you starkk

A Wrinkle in Time was a very good and easily understandable book. Its about the protagonist Meg Murry and Charles Wallace trying to find there dad who had been missing for about 3 years with her friend Calvin O'Keefe. I gave this book a four star rating because this book wasn't too different from the two movies both in 2003 and 2018.

This book is about Meg Murry and her many siblings. She gets very nervous about her father because he had gone missing. He had gone missing for many years and they start worrying about him. They eventualy find him by going on a long journey. I gave this book a four star rating because I feel like I could relate to this book because it's about twelve year old girl and I am also twelve.

I gave this book a 5 star rating, because it was a great book but it had a twist to it. This book is about a girl name Meg. Her father dispersed so these magical people appeared and helped her find him they were rushed to find him. Meg went through a lot to find her dad, I made a connection with this book, because when I lost some very valuable to me and just like Meg she couldn't find her dad, I couldn't find my valuable thing so my friends helped me find it and I was thankful for them just like Meg was thankful for her friends.
