it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, ya
Recommended for: kids from 9-12

Meg has glasses, braces, an incredible talent for math, and absolutely no patience for bs or mediocrity. She protects her genius little brother, Charles Wallace, against the cruel taunts of the villagers. And she gets into fights over her parents' reputation on a weekly basis.
She is pretty much the best character in the entire world. I would read a novel about her even if it were about the mundanities of village life. Instead she, Charles Wallace, and her schoolmate Calvin (smart, handsome, popular--and dirt poor) become involved in a battle that spans time and space. So basically, this is the perfect novel.

I recommend this to anyone, especially kids in the 3rd-6th grade.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) This was my favorite book when I was 11. I still love it.

Gwen i really love this book too, used to be my favorite, maybe still is!

Harriet Jo, of Little Women, and Meg are very much sisters in spirit and both deeply influenced my understanding of what it means to be female...thank God!

Gwen Meg kind of helped me figure out what it means to stand up for what is right and good in the world and to never give up that fight.
