Reading this again after so many years later reminded me why I so liked this book. Honestly, Margaret Murray was such an easy character to relate to when I was a short-sighted geek with braces struggling with father figures and the like. Thankfully, even these kinds of experiences pass (though I do admit I'm still practically a geeky four-eyed individual), but that still doesn't take away from the fact that Meg is a character I can empathize with.

The book itself is a short read now, but hardly an unnecessary one. I still loved it, loved it for both its simple storytelling and its mild complexities in ideas. Tesseracting was what I took away from A Wrinkle in Time, and even now I still remember what the concept of a tesseract is (plus, it's a good conversation-starter!).
