Why we love this book:

A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in Madeleine L'Engle’s riveting science fiction series, the Time Quintet. L'Engle incorporates the idea of space travel via tesseract, which is a fold (or wrinkle) in the fabric of spacetime. The protagonist, Meg Murry, is the daughter of scientists and a bit of a troublemaker. As a child, I adored this series. As a parent, I’m delighted to find that my sons are equally enthralled.
