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 sit down for a moment, and then I`ll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract. A tesseract (in case the reader doesn`t know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L`Engle`s unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O`Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg`s father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.
