I remember reading this back in elementary school. Meg is far from perfect, with her glasses and crazy hair, but she's the perfect protagonist. Her brother, Charles Wallace and friend Calvin join her on her adventure to save her father. A great fantasy novel about love, family, and just what we're capable of.

Meg, C.W., and their friend Calvin go on a search for Meg and C.W's father, who has gone missing. They run into a lot of memorable characters, and there is some really fun play on words in this book. The ending is pretty expected, but it doesn't take away from the story at all. It's a nice spin on regular fantasy books.

I really enjoyed this book. It showed me a lot about life in itself actually. I was amazed at how odd the different places were and never actually thought about some of the ideas that the author portrayed in the book. It was fantastic and I recommend it to those who seek a book filled with adventure and fantasy.

A Wrinkle In Time was a book we had to read for Mrs. Flemming, our reading teacher. The first few chapters start off slow, talking to you about the characters, mainly Meg and their feelings.

Charles Wallace, Meg's little brother has some power that makes it so he is incredibly smart, but usally quite. He gets these feelings that makes it so he knows how you are feeling and usally why. He is quiet focused on his Mom and sister who are worried about Father.

Father and Mother are scientests who have been working for the goverment. When Father disappears Mother knows more then she's saying.

Then Mrs. Whatsit, the witch who used to be a star, shows up and says some strange things to Mother. Then the next day Charles Wallace takes Meg to go visit Mrs. Whatsit and her two friends Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which. That is where they meet Calvin, who comes home with them.

The next day the three children return to the woods only to be tessered. Tessering is to travle by the 5th demension.

The children visit some pretty strange people like the Happy Medium, Aunt Beast and the Dark Thing.

Have fun reading the book!

It all starts with a simple memory. The memory which brings all other thoughts to a screeching halt. The though of time.
When I read this book, I couldn't believe what I was reading. Unlike most of the people at my local school, I understood every word Madeline L'Engle was trying to tell, and could feel what Meg and Charles Wallace were actually feeling. Okay, your probably thinking, "Oh, okay, so it's just some book about some kids who go through time. Big deal?" It's MUCH more than that. I speak now from a true 11 year old. THIS IS AN AWESOME BOOK!
The author, Madeline L'Engle, whom which I admire so much, wrote amazing books. Madeline, if you are reading this now, please understand just how good your book truly is. Thank you all for taking the time to read my book review, and I hope that sometime you will read A Wrinkle in Time. God Bless America!
Peace out~
