A Wrinkle in Time (The Time Quintet #1) - Anna Quindlen, Madeleine L'Engle

I'm not entirely sure how this is the first time I've ever read this classic YA novel, but it was about time. While I did find a few places that seemed to drag just a bit, and I could very much tell that this novel was written in a different era, my overall impression was that this is a great piece of fiction. I particularly enjoyed the author's ability to give each of her young characters flaws, and allow those flaws to be an integral part of the story's eventual resolution. The message of embracing our differences is certainly one that remains challenging and meaningful today. I very much enjoyed this book
