This book was one I remember liking as a child ( although, the wind in the door has stuck with me more) and when I realized my sister hadn’t read I suggested we read it for the pod sat we’re considering starting. This classic tale follows a bunch of misfits on an epic adventure to save Meg and Charles Wallace’s father.
To be honest, I didn’t remember as much of this book as I thought I did. And, it is a little dated but it is still a wonderful novel. Madeleine L’Engle once said something like, ” if it’s too complicated or groundbreaking for adults, write it for children.” That’s a paraphrase that’s probably misremembered but I still feel its representative of what her novels have been for so many people. In her worlds, women are scientists and heroes, plain, awkward and weird kids find happiness and the extraordinary is true. I’m happy that she had the courage and the desire to write these novels. I hope we all can have the courage to be scientists and heroes in life.by
