This was one of my first favorite science fiction books. (It's really old - ok not really old - just kind of old.) It's short and very fun to read so, if you're just trying out science fiction for the first time this book might be a great place to start. I still love to read this book. I once met the author and was as impressed with her character as I am with her writing. This isn't her only book either so, if you like it, there are more.

About the author (1997)

Author Madeleine L'Engle was born in New York City on November 29, 1918. She graduated from Smith College. She is best known for A Wrinkle in Time (1962), which won the 1963 Newbery Medal for best American children's book. While many of her novels blend science fiction and fantasy, she has also written a series of autobiographical books, including Two Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage, which deals with the illness and death of her husband, soap opera actor Hugh Franklin. In 2004, she received a National Humanities Medal from President George W. Bush. She died on September 6, 2007 of natural causes. Since 1976, Wheaton College in Illinois has maintained a special collection of L'Engle's papers, and a variety of other materials, dating back to 1919.
