A Newbery Award winner, "A Wrinkle in Time "is an iconic novel that continues to inspire millions of fans around the world.

Review quote

""A Wrinkle in Time" is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT."--Meg Cabot
"A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place."--Cory Doctorow "[L'Engle's] work is one of the things that made me a writer, a science fiction and fantasy fan, an avid reader. Hers were the first books I read that mixed math and magic, the quest and the quantum."--Scott Westerfeld ""A Wrinkle in Time" taught me that you can tackle even the deepest and most slippery concepts of physics and philosophy in fiction for young readers. It's a great lesson for all writers, and a tough tesseract to follow."--David Lubar
