Publisher Description

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.

My favourite

Definitely my favorite book out there

Worst book ever, I’m bored out of my mind reading it, I’m forced to for a school assignment but otherwise I definitely don’t recommend it. It’s more of a teen or adult novel than a children’s fantasy due to the large vocabulary used in the book. My group and I are dreading doing the project since the book isn’t interesting in the slightest. 🤬🤬😡😡😤🙄🙄 I will never ever ever buy this book.

One of the greatest

children's science fantasy books ever written. It was such a pleasure to read it again in ebook form.
