A Wrinkle in Time is a beautifully written book which spans genres and is loved by adults and children alike.

The story is an exciting mixture of fantasy and science fiction, encompassing darkness and light, fear and friendship.

There's an interview with Madeleine L'Engle, who died at the age of 88 in 2007, reproduced at the end of the book so you can find out what her worst subject at school was and what her first job and much more.
