The magic of books is that many can stand the test of time. A Wrinkle In Time is one of those books. It may have been written over 50 years ago, but its magic, its beauty, and its tale of fitting in never stops being important.
Meg Murry and her younger brother Charles Wallace are trying to fit in. The whole town is talking about them, and believes that their father is a loser scientist that has left them, their siblings, and their brilliant scientist mother without any word or hope to ever see him again. But Meg Murray and Charles Wallace do not believe it. They have made one new friend, Calvin O’Keefe, and together the three of them are going to have the most amazing adventure ever.
When a strange neighbor, Mrs. Whatsit, comes to them and asks for their help they discover a whole new strange and magical world. They also just might find Meg’s Dad isn’t such loser scientist after all.
