Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time may be the best-known science-fiction/fantasy novel for children, and L’Engle’s characters are relatable and noteworthy, searing themselves into literary history. When Meg Wallace’s father participates in a scientific experiment, and unnervingly disappears, Meg and her eccentric little brother, Charles, are drawn into a strange adventure. Aided by a trio of odd women named Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, beings that gave up their lives as stars to battle the mysterious Black Thing, the Wallace children and their friend, Calvin, “tesser” to the conformist planet Camazot, stepping into a wrinkle in time and space. They find a cookie-cutter society that sits in complete contrast to the diverse world of Earth. A Central Intelligence official punishes the visiting children by brainwashing or “mindmelding” with Charles, requiring Meg to now not only save her father, but also her brother. Meg discovers the power of love and altruism as she confronts the giant brain controlling Camazotz, and Meg is able to rescue her brother, returning home to find her family intact once more.
