by Hope Larson


L’Engle’s Wrinkle in Time has always been a fascinating book to me.  Full of adventure, spacetime physics, and allegory, the story is rich, but I especially love how the characters, specifically Meg, learn that their weakness can be their biggest strengths.  In her graphic adaption, Larson does a great job of capturing this through her bold illustrations.  You see the wounds that Meg carries, the confusion of being a teenager, and the confrontation that occurs when you face a world with your whole self, emotion and rationality.

For most kids and teens, I’d still recommend the original novel, but for those who prefer the graphic format, this is still an engaging and empowering read that does a great job rendering most of the original’s strength.
