A Wrinkle in Time
Madeleine L'Engle
Fantasy & Science Fiction
Aug 7, 2018
Troubled, feisty, and, as we shall discover, remarkably resourceful, thirteen-year-old Meg is one of the most unforgettable heroines in twentieth-century young adult fiction. Her family is rather memorable, too. There are her sympathetic parents, both of whom are scientists and one of whom, her father, has gone missing in the course of his research into the space-time continuum. Despite their brilliance, the adult Murrys nonetheless—thrillingly for the adolescent reader—rely on their children for aid and solace. Along the way, L’Engle depicts societies utopian, dystopian, and in between, augmenting the action with the enigmas of quantum physics and grounding its resolution in the verities of Christian virtue: humility, hope, love. Readers won’t want to put the book down, and will be happy to have four subsequent volumes in the Time Quintet to pick up when they do.

This was one of my favorite books from elementary school. It's profound, yet simple -- definitely worth one's time.
