A WIND IN THE DOOR
New York : Dell, 1984.
IL 5-8 RL 5.3
L'Engle writes science fiction so realistically, you begin to believe it.
If you've read "A Wrinkle in Time", you already know Charles Wallace is
a super bright first grader and Meg is his older sister whose thoughts
Charlie Wallace can read. This story is Meg's quest to explore the unknown
dimensions of her mind in order to save her brother from death. The story
links Meg to some unlikely companions, to her principal who doesn't understand
her and is somewhat a wimp, to the garden snake the twins treat as a pet.
Can there really be a dragon going through the three tests laid out by
the teacher? This book will take you beyond the bounds of time and space
as we know it. Galaxies become instantly penetrable and human cells infinitesimally
large. If you want to stretch your mind, read "A Wind in the Door".
