"A Wrinkle in Time"

by Madeleine L'Engle, YA, 1993/1962, audio CD, 5hrs 17min, rating=3.5

Father is missing!  His top secret job as a physicist for the government has taken him away --but where? --and how?  Meg and her younger brother, Charles Wallace, set out with their friend Calvin on an exciting adventure through time and space to search for him.  With the help of the mysterious Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, the youngsters learn to expect the unexpected as they move in the fifth dimension known as the "tesseract." (cover)

This is a book that made it on the banned list based on references to witches and crystal balls and religious undertone.  I don't see the harm.  I actually saw this book as a lovely story of family love under a sci-fi vision.  A book that is smart, full of imagination, and hope building. 

The cast of characters were quite the variety .. humans, aliens, and immortal beings.  Each playing distinct roles that gave intrigue and flow to the story.  Each finding place in the adventure of good vs evil. 

A fanciful story of perseverance, courage, and kinship.  I wouldn't mind putting this book on my bookshelf.
