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. A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal.

I enjoyed this, but like many middle-grade books I've read as an adult, I think I would appreciated it more as a middle schooler. There were several aspects of the world not really adequately explained. (I mean why can't the Mrs. Ws go with them to fight IT?? They never give a reason.) Also, the end...
SWEDISH REVIEW Det är en mörk och stormig natt. Tonåriga Meg Murry sitter i sitt rum på vinden, lyssnar på blåsten som river i huset och funderar för sig själv. Hon vantrivs med sin kropp och sitt utseende. I skolan är det mesta jobbigt och krångligt. Och hennes pappa, vetenskapsmannen, har försvu...
This was on my kids summer reading list for 7th grade so I thought I would read it. I don't think much of "A Wrinkle in Time". A good start and a rushed ending. No character development. Even one my daughters was unimpressed. I am sorry if I'm stepping on the toes of some of you with fond childh...
This was one of the first full novels I ever read. It was recommended by the school librarian when I was a 6th grader. I remember a sense of awe and good feelings, but not what the book was about.
