What a crazy story A Wrinkle in Time is. I had never read anything like it when I read it a long time ago. I thought it was science fiction, but it's really fantasy -- with some science fiction elements. It's unlike any other book that I can think of. First published in 1962, it seems like it was before its time. I haven't read this recently, but I imagine it would hold up well, and I would have no problem recommending it to anyone today.
I know I've read a couple of Madeleine L'Engle's other books, but I don't remember them leaving such a big impression. A Wrinkle in Time is the beginning of a series, so there are more adventures for these kids. If you haven't read this classic, I highly recommend it. A Wrinkle in Time is a short book, but will leave a big impression. There's a reason this won the Newbery Medal.
