So this is my favorite Madeleine L'Engle book of them all, and I like to reread it every summer. (I didn't reread in 2009, so this is the first time in two years.) It's a Newbery Honor book, which I didn't even realize until this year -- this is the first year I've ever really looked at that medal on the cover and thought about it.

Even though A Wrinkle in Time is probably the best written of her children's books, I've always liked Vicky better, and I've always found Adam to be the more crush-worthy guy. They are much less epic than Meg and Calvin -- except, of course, when they aren't.

It holds up as well as it always has, but every time I read I find new things, new meanings, new confirmations that we are here and what we do matters.
