I really enjoyed this book. I was a little bit surprised by how much religion was in this book. I wasn't expecting that. It kind of reminded me of Narnia or Golden Compass. I look forward to seeing how the movie comes out. Read full review

February 2020 - At first I was all into it thanks to that obnoxious little Charles Wallace and his mad sandwich making skills (adding liverwurst, cream cheese & onion to my grocery list). But then the story got all weird and magic-y in Chapter 4 so I was out. Read full review

About the author (2017)

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.
