Meg and her little brother Charles Wallace don’t fit in, and their father has been missing for some time. However, everything changes when they and their friend Calvin meet Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, and travel across the universe to save their father, in the process learning more about themselves.

A Wrinkle in Time is a classic, but one I fear might be inaccessible to many of our students, due to it’s reliance on describing the fantasy world and the different concepts that govern it. The graphic novel adaptation solves that problem by conveying much of that through pictures, which are gorgeous, making this an engaging read for anyone, especially those who identify with not fitting in.
