The book that I recommend is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Although I’ve read this book quite a while before, this novel is still very touching and shines in my childhood. The main character Meg Murry, Charles Wallace Murry, and Calvin O’Keefe goes on a journey through space and time, from galaxy to galaxy, as they try to save the Murrys’ father and the world. The novel offers a glimpse into the war between light and darkness, and good and evil, as the young characters mature and develop through their journey. Each of them has a unique ability and the adventurers gradually discover their ability and use it against the darkness (evil). The book is written by Madeleine L’Engle and is a highly suggested piece of literature for teens who are into fantasy fiction.
A wrinkle in time is high-grade literature for children who loves to explore because it involves exciting journeys. As you read along, you will notice that characters will be developing independence and encouragement even if they’re foolish in others’ opinions. People who’ve ever felt different or lonely would be suitable because they would feel empathetic and might gain back confidence. (Just the same as the main character in the book.) To add, people that enjoy non-fiction books may not be interested because it’s a creative stories. It’s not about fairy tales, but similarly, time travelling to different planets, meeting mysterious characters and including some magic.
The message of the story would be responsibility and the power of love, especially family love. The author delivered significant morals by learning from how she solved difficult situations. The novel presented to the reader that individuals could always make a big difference. Likewise, the family was shown to be the most valuable thing you could ever have in which the main character faced danger and challenges to save her family. Before reading the story, I never thought about the importance of family and I rarely thought about the contributions my parents made to raising me. However, afterwards, I realized the significance of families, such as giving a safe and warm home, love, and being a role model. I could never imagine what my life would be like without a supportive family and I learned to be thankful for my family and everything around me.
This book would be recommended if you have an imaginary mind and a wild personality. I would rate this book a 9 out of 10 because it is a simple and heart-touching story that involves significant messages.
