The story takes place in 4 different planets. Earth, Uriel, Camazotz, and Ixchel. Earth is our home planet. People are different and unique. The story starts here on this planet but at the Murry's home.

Uriel is a Utopia world filled with happiness. There are centaurs that roam there. The planet has tall mountains. The planet is described as a beautiful place. Meg was most amazed about this place.

Camaztoz is a similar planet like Earth. The people act the same and everything is the same. The food are tasteless. The pkanet is ruled by a brain named IT.

Ixchel is another planet like Camazotz. This is where the beasts come in the story. This place has no light even though it orbits around the same sun as the Camazotz. The planet is ruled by the 3 beasts. Meg Murry is the outcast in her family. She adores her mother and her 3 brothers, especially Charles Wallace. She has brown hair, glasses, and braces. She feels insecure about her looks when she compares herself to her mother. She soon faces her fears to save Charles Wallace.
Charles Wallace Murry is the youngest child and the smartest. He is very loving, especially to his sister Meg. When he travels to Camazotz, he falls into IT''s "spell" but was able to block IT out of his mind the first time but not the second time.
Calvin O'Keefe is tall, thin, and has red-hair. He isn't very smart at math but studies to stay on the basketball team. He is also one of the popular boys at school.
