Transcript of A Wrinkle In Time

Chapter 1:
"Mrs. Whatsit"
This chapter is about how Meg Murry thought that shes was worthless, stupid, useless, a delinquent, and a bother to everyone and everything. Even the weather. Meg was an outkast. Her and her little brother, Charles Wallace, were outkasts of the entire town. Charles was considered 'just not right' and 'subnormal'. Nobody in the town cared enough about her family. Meg's father had disappeared out of the blue, and everyone in the town thought that he had just left the family, which caused the family to become outkasted and considered 'subnormal'. One day, or should I say night, their town was having a small hurricane. In the middle of the night, 3/5 of her family was awake and they heard noises coming from the lab in their kitchen. It turned out to be an old lady named Mrs. Whatsit. Mrs. Whatsit stayed for a little bit and had a sandwich. Two things that made Mrs. Whatsit different was the fact that she knew about Meg's Mother and Father's theory about a tesseract. "There is such a thing as a tesseract." Is what Mrs. Whatsit said that made Meg's Mother be caught by surprise.
Chapter 2: Mrs. Who
This chapter shows how Meg is struggling in school. It shows that Meg doesn't care about her work and how she doesn't believe anyone but her mother when they say her father isn't coming home. "The most belligerent, uncooperative child in school." Is what her own principal says to her face. When Meg gets home, Charles Wallace takes her to see Mrs. Whatsit. They meet a boy named Calvin O'Keefe on the way. Calvin say something just brough him out there, like he got this feeling that he had to go walking. He said he felt something like a compulsion. Anyways, they go to the haunted house where Mrs. Whatsit lives. This is where they meet Mrs. Who. There, they find out why Mrs. Who took Mrs. Buncombe's sheets. Also, Mrs. Who quickly shoos them away and tells them that the time is not right and they must wait. But, the question is, what is about to happen and why is the time not right?
Chapter 3: Mrs. Which
This chapter is about how Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin Meet Mrs. Which. This chapter also looks into how Calvin and Meg have a little something that might start between them. "Maybe we weren't supposed to meet before this. I mean, I knew who you were in school and everything, but I didn't know you. But I'm glad we've met now, Meg." Is what Calvin said to Meg as they were walking back from Mrs. Who & Mrs. Whatsit's house, on their way to Meg & Charles Wallace's house for dinner. There, at Meg's home, is where we find out more about Calvin's family. Calvin has a big family who seems to not care about him at all, yet he loves them. Calvin says Meg is lucky to have all of this; A beautiful Mother, A marvelous home, and some great siblings. All of the things that Calvin doesn't have. Calvin finds out how much of a math genius Meg is. After dinner and Charles Wallace getting tucked into bed, Meg and Calvin go for a walk. This is where we find out more about Meg's father. Meg's father is a really smart scientist who was traveling a lot, so Meg's family just settled in her current town. Her Father and Mother use to write everyday, but the letters stopped coming. Her mother still writes him every night though. After Meg and Calvin talk for a while, it's finally time. Time t go and retrieve Meg's father. Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, And Mrs. Which all come to get them and take them to wherever their journey starts.
Chapter7: The Man with Red Eyes
In this chapter, Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin go inside of CENTRAL Central Intelligence Center, and there they get sent to a man with red eyes. The man with red eyes tries to 'take' Charles. The man says he has been waiting for them. The man tries to take all of them under pressure and make them become of "IT". The man succeeds in taking Charles Wallace under his spell, and they lose Charles.
A Wrinkle In Time
By: Miranda Jackson
A Wrinkle In Time is a book that is mainly about family. It features some Sci-Fi things in it, too. But the main lesson in A Wrinkle In Time is that you have to face your fears for family. For almost anyone really. The character Meg showed a lot of character development. At first, in the beginning, she was this girl who thought she was unlucky, unloved, not smart, someone who had a lot of fears, and was alone. By the end of the book Meg was complete, felt loved, fearless, and she finally realized that she was smart all along. Meg made lots of new friends along the way, and she learned that family is all you ever have and all you ever really need. Meg felt complete for the first time in a long time. The book A Wrinkle In Time is a very fulfilling, lesson-filled, and heartwarming book that I would read all over again. I recommend this book to everyone and anyone that has the wonderful ability to read. This book was complete and utter bliss to read. It teaches you many life lessons that you will use and need to know along your rocky journey that is life.
