Book Bucket List: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

There are books in your life that you come across and you know you have to read them. They can be old, they can be new but before your time runs out you have to find time to read them. Welcome to my Book Bucket List everyone!

Synopsis as taken from Goodreads.com: It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger. 

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract".

Meg's father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?

It's amazing how many books I missed out in my childhood, but with so many books in the world it's to be expected right? Here's what I know about this book, it comes highly recommended by everyone who's read it, it's won a couple awards, and in general is considered a must read. I've been told before that it's actually a really a short book, so hopefully I'll be able to pick it up one day in between work or my other responsibilities and read it.
