<p><b>Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.</b></p><p>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.</p><p>"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."</p><p>A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.</p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i> is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of <i>A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters</i>, and <i>An Acceptable Time</i>.</p><p> <i>A Wrinkle in Time </i>is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.</p><p>This title has Common Core connections.</p><p><b>Books by Madeleine L'Engle</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>A Wrinkle in Time Quintet</b><br /><b></b><i>A Wrinkle in Time</i><br /><i>A Wind in the Door</i><br /><i>A Swiftly Tilting Planet</i><br /><i>Many Waters</i><br /><i>An Acceptable Time</i></p><p><i>A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope Larson</p><p><i>Intergalactic P.S. 3</i> by Madeleine L'Engle; illustrated by Hope Larson: A standalone story set in the world of <i>A Wrinkle in Time</i>.</p><p><b>The Austin Family Chronicles</b><br /><i>Meet the Austins</i> (Volume 1) <br /><i>The Moon by Night</i> (Volume 2) <br /><i>The Young Unicorns</i> (Volume 3)<br /><i>A Ring of Endless Light </i>(Volume 4) A Newbery Honor book!<br /><i>Troubling a Star</i> (Volume 5)</p><p><b>The Polly O'Keefe books</b><br /><b></b><i>The Arm of the Starfish</i><br /><i>Dragons in the Waters</i><br /><i>A House Like a Lotus</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>And Both Were Young</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>Camilla</i><br /><i></i><br /><i>The Joys of Love</i></p>

<b>Now a major motion picture starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson!</b><BR> <BR><b>In this #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling novel that’s perfect for fans of John Green’s <i>The Fault in Our Stars</i>, two teens fall in love with just one minor complication—they can’t get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives.</b><BR><BR><i>Can you love someone you can never touch?</i><BR> <BR>Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.<BR> <BR>The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.<BR> <BR>Will’s <i>exactly</i> what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.<BR> <BR>What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?
