Read in June, 2008

I first read this in 1996 and was really disappointed by it, but could remember almost nothing about it, and therefore thought I'd give it a second chance. I'm glad I did, because while I can definitely see I was above the target age both times I read it, I actually enjoyed it a lot more this time. Perhaps because my expectations were so low? I don't know why I never realized (or remembered rather, as it's too obvious for me to have missed in my first reading) that L'Engel was a Christian author, but it was a pleasant surprise to see all the references to Scripture in the book. It's a sweet YA fantasy that would probably have benefited from having been read at a younger age.
