Meg Murry can't help but be worried when her six-year-old brother, Charles Wallace, announces there are dragons in the vegetable garden. He's so bright, and so different from other kids, he's getting bullied at school, and he is also strangely, seriously ill.



But Charles Wallace is right about the dragons--actually a friendly entity who has come to help Charles Wallace fight his sickness, and to take Meg and her friend Calvin O'Keefe on a terrifying, wonderful journey into galactic space--where they must battle the force of evil to save Charles Wallace, and themselves.

    " Any of you watched the Secret? I think Madeleine was referring to it when she talked about plants, and their communication across the distance. In the book, there was an experiment made by one of the characters. One plant was left in their house, where there was much fighting, another was in the library and provided with sunlight and water, another was not provided by water but was loved and talked to everyday by the character. The first plant didn't grow well, the second plant grew normally, and the third plant (even without water) grew outstandingly! I do believe that this is real, search for Dr. Emoto's water experiment and the Secret :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 2/13/2014

    " I'm understanding these so much better now than when I first read them. They are like intro to science fiction and philosphy for 11- and 12-year-olds. I understand that there are "religious" overtones but I understand them in a more yogic way. Through my own lens of understanding of how the universe works. Very cool. "

    " good but 1st one was better! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hpboy13 | 2/5/2014

    " A sequel that is just as good as the first one, and it does a good job of expanding on familiar characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 2/2/2014

    " I have loved Wrinkle in Time for years and didn't know this or #3 even existed until now. I loved it...this was a great book and I can't wait to have my girls read it. There is so much to enjoy on different levels, just as a simple story, and then as an adult I realize that there is so much more. Even better was to listen to it, it was read by the author and was a treat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 1/26/2014

    " I absolutely loved this! I wish I'd read the whole series sooner, but I suppose I wouldn't have appreciated the fullness of the allegory as a child. I'm sure there are layers I miss even now. You gotta love those deep, allegorical fantasy stories! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri Gorleski | 1/16/2014

    " This book like the one before it is fantastic! It taught me a lot of things (even though i had some trouble pronouncing a handful of words.) But other wise this book was very good!(I dont want to waste any of my synonims.) This book has a lot to do with space travel and who knew that the whole universe might be counting onthe life of one little boy! Read this amazing book! Worood "

    " Have you read the first? I almost cried when the 'dragon' died. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaindel | 12/20/2013

    " You have to read the whole trilogy to get the full effect :-) "

    " Second in the time qaurtet. This book was amazing. I was amazed how l'engle combined science with fantasy to create such a wonderful book. "

    " One to be read by all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten Kinnell | 9/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 7/19/2013

    " It was pretty good. Still not sure what the title has to do with anything, but otherwise, a good follow-up to A Wrinkle in Time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 10/23/2012

    " Her books are kind of strange. I like the emphasis that the individual is important. "

    " I thought it was terrible, and so did my kids. What a confusing, and worse-boring, mess. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Siobhan (tigress5cubs) | 7/31/2012

    " Love this series. Read the first one when I was a child. Read the read when I was an adult and started teaching middle school. Such fun books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 4/28/2012

    " This book is the perfect example of why fantasy/sci-fi is just not my genre. Most of the time I felt like I was listening to another language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 1/31/2012

    " This book is sweet. I love how abstract Madelieine L'Engle always is. "
