It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract".
Meg's father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?

A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books from my childhood. I really really love it. I have read the entire Time Quintet countless times, and I am always excited to revisit some of my old favorites. When I saw a movie was coming out, I literally squealed. Literally. And when I saw who they cast as the famous Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who and Mrs Which (Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey respectively) I got even more excited! A Wrinkle in Time is always the book I think of first whenever someone mentioned time travel. It is just so whimsical and fun, you can’t help but love it no matter how many times you read it.
My favorite part of A Wrinkle in Time is the family dynamic in the book. We follow Meg, Calvin and Charles as they team up on a time traveling adventure to recuse their father. I cannot wait to see what the movie is going to do to bring this beloved classic of mine to the big screen. I know it is going to be so magical seeing it play out before my eyes, just like it was with the chronicles of narnia. In honor of the upcoming movie, I did a re-read of the book and I was so happy to find that this quick, fantastical and engaging read was just as much fun as it was when I was 10.
“The only way to cope with something deadly serious is to try to treat it a little lightly.” I can’t wait to see the movie! I loved the book as a child too…
Says a lot about the book when it makes you want to reread it. Glad you enjoyed it just as much the second time around.

I haven’t had a chance to read this one yet, but I definitely want to read it before the movie comes out.
Great quotes as well!
