A Wrinkle in Time is one of the most significant novels of our time.

Madeleine L'Engle (19182007) was born in New York City and attended Smith College. She wrote more than 60 books, the most famous of which is A Wrinkle In Time (1962), winner of the Newbery Award in 1963. L'Engle continued the story of the Murry family from A Wrinkle In Time with seven other novels (five of which are available as A Wrinkle In Time Quintent from Square Fish). She also wrote the famous series featuring the Austin family, beginning with the novel Meet The Austins (1960). L'Engle revisited the Austins four more times over the next three decades, concluding with Troubling a Star in 1994. The story of the Austins had some autobiographical elements, mirroring Madeleine's life and the life of her family. Madeleine L'Engle's last book, The Joys of Love, is a romantic, coming-of-age story she wrote back in the 1940s, that was recently published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT. Meg Cabot on A Wrinkle in Time
A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place. Cory Doctorow on A Wrinkle in Time
A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment. School Library Journal, starred review on A Wind in the Door
Madeleine L'Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time. The New York Times Book Review on A Wind in the Door
An intricately woven fantasy ... Theme is L'Engle's greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living. Booklist, starred review on A Swiftly Tilting Planet
This will be enjoyed for its suspense and humor as well as its other levels of meaning. Kirkus Reviews on Many Waters
L'Engle blends speculative fiction with biblical theology to create another provocative spellbinding tale. Philadelphia Inquirer on Many Waters
L'Engle has again achieved the award-winning style of A Wrinkle in Time ... Highly recommended. VOYA on An Acceptable Time
Ruth Hill Rightmire5 Stars Out Of 5December 11, 2009Ruth Hill RightmireA Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books. For several years I read it to my fifth grade students in a secular school - a chapter a day after lunch break. They would beg me to keep reading! At the end, they would be able to understand God's love. I did not know that there were more books in a series. Now that I am retired, I will buy them to read to my grandchildren!
BibleGirl4 Stars Out Of 5January 24, 2009BibleGirlThese books are pretty good. But I would not get them if you are a new Christian, because these don't exactly support Christianity.Other than that these books are pretty good. I recommend readers ages 13-18, no younger, in the fourth book there is a mention of sex, no more, but nobody younger than 12 should read these. I am 13, and I think they are pretty good, and I am saving up for the books about the Austin family.
