A Wrinkle in Time is a remarkably unique book! L'Engle makes a normal girl--Meg Murry--who doesn't like how she looks, and, with skill, turns it into a story. Meg gets taken (with her incredibly smart 5-year-old brother, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe, a popular high school basketball player) on a sci-fi adventure through time, space, and dimensions to find her lost father, Dr. Murry, and to save the universe. Extremely suspenseful and interesting; I couldn't put it down!

A Wrinkle In Time will always be one of my favorite reads. I put this book up there with books you must read before you die. This was my introduction into the scifi/fantasy Genre and since then I have never looked back. I love that this book includes a moral that no matter what your age or how different you are from other people you can still succeed in life and anything you want to do. Being different is what makes you who you are. Charles Wallace will go down in history as one of my favorite charcters ever written in a book. I will be reading the rest of the series and continuing on this journey with him.

       A Wrinkle in Time is a book about time travel. A man disapear's and many people think he has died. He has a daughter and three sons. His daughter, Meg has trouble in school. Then Meg and her brother, Charles Wallace, meet three strange ladies who take them on a wild adventure.
      A Wrinkle In Time had a lot to like about it . I liked it when Calvin and Meg were sitting in the backyard . I also liked when the creeatures took Meg. It was interesting when Meg saves Charles Wallace from It. It was a very interesting book.
      I would recommed this book to any9-99 who likes science fictio.It also has a lot of hard words,likee myopic. It was a wonderful book.

I can see why this is considered a classic. I hadn't actually read this novel until later on in life, I'm sort of sorry I waited so long. Any young reader in love with fantasy will enjoy this novel. It is mysterious enough to keep you reading and has this adventurous soul that keeps moving throughout the novel carrying you along for the ride. What an endearing little book. I really enjoyed it. It was spiritually
calming and definitely something I will be reading to my future
children.

This was such a great book I couldn't put it down! I loved this book because a lot of the things that the author clearly made up seemed completely real when the concepts were explained. One of them was the concept of a tesserect being a fifth dimension of travel where a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points. I feel like the idea of a tesserect or a wrinkle in time was actually real when I was reading the book. The book is a little old but it still seems like any teen today would really enjoy the book because I enjoyed it so much. If you like young science fiction novels you will probably like this book.

I read A Wrinkle in time for school and i really liked it. I felt like I actually knew the characters, Meg, Charles, and Calvin. It tells about Meg, Charles, and Calvin going on an adventure to find Mr. Murry(charles and Meg's father) They meet exciting obstacles along the way. It is very well written and I reccomend it.

I don't remeber reading it as a child, I don't think young children could appreciate it very much. I think that this is one of those books that you need to read when you're older to really appreciate. It was mysterious, but well written. It just seemed to jump all over the place and was at times confusing, but, it was interesting and I found myself pushing forward to finish it.

A Wrinkle in Time was a very interesting book. It took the way we look at time and turned it completly backwards. Tessering sounds like a lot of fun, and i am glad that they all came out victorious. I will never forget this book for as long as i live. Any person, young or old, looking for a book to read has no buisness reading any other book. Thanks so much to the author.

I have loved this book since I was 12 years old (many moons ago) and I was so happy to teach it to my seventh graders last year. I love the fact that Meg doesn't fit in with her family or at school. I love the fact that we get to see her mature throughout the book. I also love the clever little quips like finding a "Happy Medium."
It's just one of my favorite Science Fiction books to read on my own and to teach from.
