Madeleine L'Engle's classic YA series

A Wrinkle in Time is a classic of young adult fiction, and a must-read for those of you adults who aren't so young anymore, but never got to L'Engle's canon.

A Wrinkle in Time is the first of five books about the Murry Family. In it, Charles Wallace and Meg Murry (the eldest and youngest in the family) encounter Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which, aged representatives of the forces of light who are fighting for the future of humankind. I still remember the first time I read the book, and what a thrill it was to learn about tesseracts and fourth dimensions.

Each book deals with the trials and tribulations of the family from the perspective of a different sibling. We have the whole series, which has been reissued with beautiful glossy covers by Taeeun Yoo.
