It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger."Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

1.0 A Swiftly Tilting Planet (Time Quintet, #3) by Madeleine L'Engle
The further I progress into this series, the further downhill it goes. I had so many issues with this book. Not a single thing I read made it redeemable in the least. I know this is a beloved series for many people and if you really like this book, that's great. I'm authentically happy you enjoy thi...

Wasn't expecting to like this one, but I did. It was a bit episodic, but a pretty complex woven-together plotline. Not as didactic and trippy-for-the-sake-of-trippiness as A Wind in the Door. In fact, the story was so compelling, I found the Murry family and the present-day conflict to be the weak...

0.5 A Swiftly Tilting Planet
I had planned on reading this entire series, but I’m done after this one. I admit defeat. You have defeated me, children’s books. You win. A Swiftly Tilting Planet takes place about nine years after the events of the previous book. A South American dictator is threatening to blow up the world for ...

4.0 A Swiftly Tilting Planet
This is the third book in a classic trilogy of children's books that begins with A Wrinkle in Time. It's shelved in the section for the seven to thirteen set, but I've only now read it for the first time as an adult. There are some children's or young adult books I've first read as an adult I've lov...
