A Wrinkle in Time tells the story of a high-school aged girl, Meg Murry, who goes through a treacherous adventure through space and time with Calvin, her friend, and Charles, her brother, to rescue their long missing father who is held captive on another planet. On one stormy night, a woman, Mrs. Whatsit, arrives at Meg’s house and she introduces them to Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, who then explain to them that their entire universe is being threatened. Then, they must go to Camazotz, an evil planet, where Meg’s father is imprisoned. Throughout this novel, the entire group goes through various obstacles and are truly challenged to persevere at every stop. Meg must stay strong in order to save her father, or else, he may be gone forever.
This novel is one that I really enjoyed reading and analyzing because of a mixture of drama and educational lessons. Personally, this book was great to analyze different literary devices such as personification. I really enjoyed how Madeleine L’Engle portrays Meg, the protagonist, as it motivates the younger audiences in positive ways. I would recommend this book to any elementary or junior high school student because it was such an enjoyable read.
