    " A Wrinkle in Time written by Madeline L'Engle, is about two children who go on a journey to find their father, with the help of some friends. They travel from several different planets by tessering picking up clues that will eventually help them in returning home safely. I thought the book was interesting yet a little all over the place, literally. I do not see me using this book in the class room because I would not know what I got from reading it, more or less what I would expect the children to get from it. "

    " Wow, wow, and wow. A book that I should have read twenty years ago or more, and I'm so glad that I finally read. Weird, strange, scary, and compelling. I really think this is a classic work of young adult literature. It feels right to have finally read this book. "

    " This book rocked my world as a kid. I was an avid reader, but mostly fixated on horse books like Misty of Chincoteague and The Black Stallion. This series showed me that there was a whole 'nother world of much more complex books out there. "

    " The first half of this book was very strange, but I enjoyed the second half. The characters are interesting. L'Engle's said in interviews that she had trouble selling it because it was "too different". I agree, it was quite different. If I'd discovered it as a kid I might have liked it better. "
