After escaping from her scientist captors, Rat finds herself aboard a space station

When Rat—a lavender-colored, highly intelligent rat—escaped from her cage and found a hiding place in a nearby crate, she had no idea she’d be headed for the stars. A space station, she quickly discovers, is no place for a rat. It’s hard to find food amid the humans and robots aboard the craft, and even harder to move around undetected.
 
Meanwhile, Jeff, whose parents are scientists, is the only kid on board. He’s got no friends to play with, and his robot babysitter is constantly bossing him around. To make matters worse, all of his friends are off at summer camp back on Earth and too busy having a great time to email him. So Jeff is beyond excited when he gets an email from an anonymous pen pal. Little does he know that his new buddy doesn’t live on Earth—and isn’t even human!

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.

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 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."

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. A Wrinkle in Time, 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.

A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.

A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.

This title has Common Core connections.
