Book of the Week - A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

A Wrinkle in Time was chosen as part of Rebel Voices; Disruptive Stories from Trailblazing Women - a new Puffin Classics collection, to celebrate International Women's Day 2023.

The mysterious disappearance of Meg and Charles Murry's father seems unsolvable until a chance encounter leads them to realise that they may find answers in the hands of their eccentric neighbours Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who and Mrs Which. With their help, Charles, Meg and their friend Calvin embark on a fantastical journey through a 'wrinkle in time' to find their father. The group encounter weird and wonderful beings such as Aunt Beast and the Happy Medium, but they are put to the test when they find themselves on a dark planet controlled by a mysterious all-powerful evil. Will they find their father and get back to Earth?
