Everyone in town thinks Meg Murry is volatile and dull-witted, and that her younger brother, Charles Wallace, is dumb. People are also saying that their physicist father has run off and left their brilliant scientist mother. Spurred on by these rumors and an unearthly stranger, the tesseract-touting Mrs Whatsit, Meg and Charles Wallace and their new friend Calvin O'Keefe embark on a perilous quest through space to find their father. In doing so, they must travel behind the shadow of an evil power that is darkening the cosmos, one planet at a time. This is no superhero tale, nor is it science fiction, although it shares elements of both. The travelers must rely on their individual and collective strengths, delving deep within themselves to find answers.
A well-loved classic and 1963 Newbery Medal winner, Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time is sophisticated in concept yet warm in tone, with mystery and love coursing through its pages. Meg's shattering, yet ultimately freeing, discovery that her father is not omnipotent provides a satisfying coming-of-age element. Readers will feel a sense of power as they travel with these three children, challenging concepts of time, space, and the triumph of good over evil. The companion books in the Time quartet, continuing the adventures of the Murry family, are A Wind in the Door; A Swiftly Tilting Planet, which won the American Book Award; and Many Waters. Every young reader should experience L'Engle's captivating, occasionally life-changing contributions to children's literature.

Meg Murray, her brother Charles Wallace and a friend Calvin are visited by some rather strange visitors one day and end up going to other universes to save Meg's missing father. They end up getting in a little over their heads, though, and some great adventures occur. Meg, who has always been the "moron" at school and has always wanted to be just like everyone else, finally sees that her differences actually pay off. It's a cute, magical story that children and adults will love.
I've recommended this to my husband already.
But on this extraordinary adventure of reading this book, Madeleine L'Engle is an amazing book writer. Her book has a twist on every page you read. Each chapter has a story of it own, and in combination, it is wonderful to read.
In conclusion, if you like to dive deep into a story of adventure, questioning, and all kind of fantasies,
I recommend A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle!
