Years ago, while conducting a top-secret experiment, Meg’s father disappeared.  Meg’s mother has never given up on his return and neither has Meg.  One stormy night an oddly dressed woman named Mrs. Whatsit shows up at the Muphy’s house and changes Meg’s life forever.  Mrs. Whatsit leads Meg, her five year old brother Charles Wallace, and her new friend Calvin on an adventure through space to rescue their father and save the universe.  Will Meg be able to save her father?  Will she find out what makes her special in time to save the universe from the evil that is threatening to overwhelm it?

A Wrinkle in Time is a classic in children’s literature.  It tells a universal story of growing up and finding your own way in the world, of learning to do for yourself what your parents cannot do for you, and of the redemptive power of love.  It is also an action filled science fiction novels that allows reader to travel across the universe, to explore different planets, and to meet fantastic creatures like Mrs. Whatsit, Aunt Beast, and IT.  This book is the first in a series which includes A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and Many Waters, and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys good books with interesting plots and memorable characters.
