A Wrinkle in Time.

A Wrinkle in Time (Farrar Straus & Giroux, 1990 reprint) by Madeleine L'Engle. In the classic tale that began her Time quartet--which includes A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and Many Waters--L'Engle recounts the cosmic adventures of young Meg Murry, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O'Keefe as they set off through time and space in search of Meg and Charles' lost dad.

With the aid of three unearthly strangers (Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which), the three youngsters face a series of challenges, take on an evil being, and learn to rely on each other's budding gifts.

A coming-of-age story that has appealed to and united generations, this is a story that mixes mystery, science, and theology while offering a prescription of compassion and uncommon sense.
