Have you ever felt like you were the one that was being punished when you didn’t do anything bad in the first place? It’s a punishment that everyone has to get but you get the worst one? That’s how Meg felt when her father went missing. She missed her father. She missed him everyday. And everyone at school thought that she was stupid. Her younger twin brothers seemed smarter than her and were more popular, and being sent to the principal’s office frequently didn’t help. But then she heard about how her father went missing, and went to rescue him from the thing, IT, that was keeping him trapped. With her little brother Charles Wallace and a friend named Calvin, they set out on the adventure against the evil, mastermind, IT.

My favorite character in this book is Meg. Even though everyone thinks she is useless she’s smarter than most people think. She just misses her dad and together with her friends she may be able to end IT. Fighting IT is hard, but evading IT is harder. With Mrs.Who, Mrs.Whatsit, and Mrs. Which’s help they may be able to find a way to destroy IT and bring Meg’s father back.

Another one of my favorite characters is Charles Wallace. He puts himself in danger to try and save his father, but may be stuck in that world if Meg and Calvin can’t save him.

I like “A Wrinkle In Time“ because it is a book that shows that not all people are the same, and that some are exactly alike, in different worlds. Also it shows that little kids can be smart. And others can be smart in their own way and that can make the biggest change in the world. People think that Meg isn’t smart. But she is. She’s smarter than most people in her own unique way.

Another reason I like A Wrinkle In Time is because this book has a lot of suspense that hangs in the air. It makes the reader seem like they can’t put the book down. On this mission Meg has many weaknesses, but with help from people that live in the world Meg’s father is stuck in, she can fight IT again.

I like how the author Madeleine L’Engle writes “A Wrinkle In Time“. Her writing explains everything as if I was there in the story. It seems like the characters come into real life. Also in A Wrinkle In Time she makes it seem like the characters in the story are actually there and they come into real life.

With the help of her friends, and father she can destroy IT. But will something go wrong? Will she lose Charles Wallace forever? Will her father be stuck in the world he’s in and never come back? Or will she be a servant of IT the evil mastermind of the world she’s stuck in?

Read the book “A Wrinkle In Time” and catch Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace on an adventure to save Meg and Charles Wallace’s father from IT. I recommend this book to everyone who loves a good mystery.
