I first read A Wrinkle in Time when I was 8 years old. I fell absolutely in love with it, reading my battered copy over and over until it broke in half and was relegated to the top of the bookshelf (where I was unable to read it). Years later, after reading it again, I found it to be just as captivating and magical as the first time I read it. Not being a people person, I found myself really connecting with Meg, the young outcast, and her love for her brother Charlie. Once again, I experienced the magic of new worlds and creatures, and cringed at the evil that threatened to devour the earth. I would highly recommend this book for people who enjoy some (simple!) science and math mixed in with their fantasy, whether they are 8 years old or 28.
Meg's father mysteriously disappears after experimenting with the fifth dimension of time travel. Determined to rescue him, Meg and her friends must outwit the forces of evil on a heart-stopping journey through space and time. A commemorative edition with an Introduction by the author. A Newbery Medal winner.
