A Wrinkle in Time By: Madeleine L’Engle
Meg has always been the odd one out in a family of extraordinary people, however one day all that changes when Meg has a chance to save them all.
Have you ever felt like you’re not special? Like you didn’t really fit in with everyone else in your family? That’s how Meg feels, with brilliant scientist parents, athletic and likeable twin brothers, and a genius younger brother. Then one night the mysterious Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which come to tell them that their father is in trouble and needs their help.
Meg, her younger brother Christopher Wallace, and their new friends Calvin find themselves traveling through space in a tesseract, or wrinkle in time. They find themselves on a planet where the people seem to have no soul and no differences and everything is run by IT. Can the children defeat IT and find Meg’s father. Will Meg finally figure out how she fits in her family? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
