Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time is one of the first pieces of literature I remember falling in love with as a child, and the first I’ve re-read for this blog. It’s a wonder I don’t re-read books more often considering my inability to retain plot details for more than a minute, but it’s a situation I plan to correct since this was such a rewarding experience.
A Wrinkle in Time is fun. My editor will hate I used such an amateurish descriptor, but, it is fun with a capital F. L’Engle combines a variety of elements which appeal to the young adult mind so beautifully in A Wrinkle in Time. An underdog heroine, fantasy, adventure, family values, and hope.
The world L’Engle creates in A Wrinkle in Time is well established and detailed, and serves its objective by illustrating the struggle between light and dark, and the value of leading with love.
If you’ve yet to read this YA classic, I suggest you make time and room for the Murry family in your hearts.
