    " I am re-reading the Austin Family book series for young adults by Madeleine L'Engle. It's amazing to read the introduction by her grandkid (although not so much a kid anymore). The series is timeless and yet dated simultaneously. The tumultuous trials of growing up in middle class America are universal. However, things like running to answer the house phone and playing records are very 1960's. Madeleine was ahead of her time in discussing complex topics like the balance between science and faith and racial and social-class tolerance. The series does stand the test of time...in my book. :) "

    " This is the book I've always wanted to read about ordinary family life. Madeleine L'Engle is able to see the beauty in the subtle plot lines of the everyday. I wish I had read this book when I was twelve. I'm already excited to share it with my (yet unborn) twelve year old daughter. "
