When Meg lost her father years ago, she never excepted to be able to find him again. He left the country for his work and went missing. Her life pretty much went downhill from there. She's unpopular, her beloved little brother, Charles Wallace, is bullied constantly because of his stupidity (but he's holding out on them because he is actually a super-genius), and her memories of her father are slipping away. When Charles meets three mysterious women, Ms. Whatsit, Ms. Who, and Ms. Witch, Meg, Charles, and their new friend Calvin are thrust into different dimensions, troubling problems, encounters with many strange and mythical creatures, and a chance to save their father, who has been locked up by the Brain. Will they be reunited with their father? Or will they be captured and removed from this dangerous game before they get the chance to find him?
I really LOVE this book by Madeline L'Engle! It is a classic that anyone wanting a 'tricky' book that will give them thrills should read.
