My mom heard about this book on the radio, and searched everywhere for it. I've been a fan of A Wrinkle in Time for years now, reading it so many times I can't count. She thought I might like it, but when I read it the story-line was simplistic, the plot random, and a lot of unneeded superfluous elements. Though the overall concept was intriguing, it did not seem to fit with the setting of the book, and half of the information was not even pertaining to the main plot line. Maybe if you're young enough, like 9 or 10, it could be interesting, but for the most part go with another intriguing time travel book.

    Disappointing at best

    I am a voracious reader. A Wrinkle in Time is my favorite book. But this one doesn't compare by a long shot. It tries to be all mysterious and frequently alludes to this wonderful science fiction/adventure/growing up book, but ends up being choppy and confusing. The characters are flat. The fact that this is an historical novel is irrelevant. The subplot about the mother being on a game show is irrelevant. The friendships, new and old, are not well explored. Nothing is very developed.
    The references to my favorite book are just deceptive. Maybe it would have been improved with better editing. I wonder if the editor ever read A Wrinkle in Time with its solid characters, interesting plot, and heartwarming theme?
    How did this book ever win the Newbery? (And people, try spelling it right.)

    Blah

    Didn't really "hook" me. Did this for a book report, and had trouble keeping myself to read it. Would not read again. Ever
