A Wrinkle in Time

Author: Madeleine L'Engle

First line: It was a dark and stormy night.

Why you should read it: L'Engle won the Newberry Medal for this dark and imaginative journey through time and space. Awkward teen Meg Murray and her remarkable baby brother, Charles Wallace find themselves dragged across the universe with some unexpected companions on a quest to rescue their missing father, a scientist whose experiment has gone horribly awry.

Why you shouldn't read it: You lack the slightest ember of imagination or curiosity.
