It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
“Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract”.
Meg’s father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?

Anyone that saw the trailer for this movie and hasn’t read this book needs to rectify that immediately. I checked this one out and read it in one day. I know it is small that might not be saying much for some of you but it was a delight all the same. It was a lovely quick read through time and space. I could clearly see the actors cast in these roles and it has increased my need to see the movie even more. The characters were quirky, something I’m always looking for, and just downright loveable. I’ve already requested the next two books in this series and look forward to more adventures with Meg, Charlie, Calvin, and the rest of the gang!
