5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable introduction to space and time concepts, October 22, 2009
This review is from: A Wrinkle in Time (Time Quintet) (Paperback)
This book features 11 year old Meg's journey across different worlds to save her father from the clutches of an evil "IT". In the beginning of the book, Meg is impetuous, impatient, and irritable, but by the end, she learns how to transform those weaknesses into her strengths.

When her little brother, Charles Wallace, gets left behind on another planet, in the clutches of evil, Meg learns that only she can save him, not even her beloved father whom she idolizes. She goes from loving her father to resenting him for not being able to save her brother, to a final acceptance that even adults are sometimes helpless. And so she has to find the strength from within herself to save her brother, because no one else knows or loves him as well as she does.

The important lessons of the book are about self reliance, courage and the power of love to defeat evil and fear.

The book can be read on many levels - by a child as an inspiration in the story of Meg, and by a parent who must eventually grapple with the complexities of letting a child 'go', so that she can explore her potential, take risks and find the source of her own power and independence.

On the way, the book introduces children to the wonders of astrophysics, with concepts that will definitely arouse a curiosity to know more about space and time.
