This was a reread for me. I read this in about 8th grade and loved it. When I saw that they were making it into a movie I got happy because it was a piece of my childhood on the big screen. The adaptation didn’t disappoint.
A Wrinkle in Time follows young Charles Wallace and Meg Murray who has trouble fitting in at school. Charles Wallace knows more than most kids his age do and it makes him an easy target, but in the book he isn’t in school yet. Meg had trouble because her father is missing but everyone claims he ran off. She acts out because she misses him and no one knows where he is.
When Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, and Mrs. Whatsit show up Meg is disbelieving but with the help of Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin she suspends her disbelief and dives in.
Together the three Mrs. W’s, Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace bend space and time to rescue Mr. Murray.
