Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (one of the most popular boys in school) journey through time and space in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem. What's a tesseract? It's a wrinkle in time―but to say any more about the subject would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Madeleine L'Engle's unusual and enchanting book.
A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.
A Wrinkle in Time is a 2018 major motion picture from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.
