My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Even though I should have read this back in Elementary school many years ago, I didn’t. However, I loved reading it and discussing it with my students now. I loved breaking down the story chapter by chapter and really getting a feel for what was going on. Not including the thoughts and ideas from everyone else. This is a great adventure book. It’s not your typical out in the wilderness adventure, but a jumping through time, fighting evil adventure. It’s an adventure that some only dream of. Meg, Charles Wallace, Calvin, and some of the other characters are relatable. So if you are into Science Fiction, time travel, and looking for an out of this world adventure then go pick up this book. Happy reading my friends!
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?
