A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle I have a vivid memory of the day I picked A Wrinkle in Time from my elementary school library. I had never heard of it before, but the description sounded like something I wanted to read. I had no idea how much I would fall in love with that book. A Wrinkle in Time had a huge influence on me as a reader. It was one of those rare books that brought me to another world and completely consumed me.I've been considering rereading A Wrinkle in Time for a few years now, but I was scared to do so. I couldn't remember anything about the book other than how much I loved it. I didn't want to taint that memory, but at the same time, I wanted to remember what I loved so much about it. When I saw it was one of the most frequently challenged books, I knew it was the perfect book for me to read for Banned Books Week.As soon as I started reading A Wrinkle in Time, I knew why I loved it! A spooky storm, a haunted house, mysterious people, and a missing physicist dad all right off the bat. A Wrinkle in Time is a nerdy book, too. School teachers and librarians have to love this book. There are so many elements of reading, math, science... and not just science - the good quantum physics stuff!I'm so glad I didn't let my reread fears keep me from revisiting A Wrinkle in Time. I highly, highly recommend it for young readers. I will definitely be reading it again with my boys.-Jennifer @ Book Den
