Publisher's Summary

Meg Murry can't help but be worried when her six-year-old brother, Charles Wallace, announces there are dragons in the vegetable garden. He's so bright, and so different from other kids, he's getting bullied at school, and he is also strangely, seriously ill.
But Charles Wallace is right about the dragons - actually a friendly entity who has come to help Charles Wallace fight his sickness, and to take Meg and her friend Calvin O'Keefe on a terrifying, wonderful journey into galactic space - where they must battle the force of evil to save Charles Wallace, and themselves.

If you could sum up A Wind in the Door in three words, what would they be?

Thoughtful, Revealing, Loving

Who was your favorite character and why?

Meg is the heroine of the novel and my favorite character. Meg has the opportunities/frustrations/successes of experiencing new knowledge firsthand while giving the reader a glance into what it might feel like to have the ability to speak across the heavens or synapses (size doesn't matter, you see).

Which scene was your favorite?

I thoroughly enjoy the scene when Meg connects (or "kives") with other individuals without the need for a vision to accompany the action. She perceives the essence of the individual's spirit and learns that love really isn't an emotion. I'm not going to spoil the book, so you'll have to listen to find out Madeline L'Engle's take on "love".

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I usually find myself in tears near the end of the book as all of the newfound skills in communication and understanding heal little brother, Charles Wallace.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended. It's for all ages, especially if you find yourself seeking some spiritual inspiration that is beyond religion.

What did you love best about A Wind in the Door?

The thing I liked best was how Madeleine L'Engle describes some moments and twisted the story downhill; and when you think the story is lost, it goes back up.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Wind in the Door?

One of the most memorable moments for me was a rather scary part. It was when the main character, Meg went into her twin brother's garden at night, and she discovers a villain, but she does not know the true, evil nature of this villain.

What about Jennifer Ehle???s performance did you like?

I liked the performance because Jennifer Ehle describes every moment so well with her voice, I feel like I'm actually in the story for a second, in parts where it's wonderful, in parts when it's sad, in parts when it's VERY scary, I always feel I'm there.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Sometimes, this book made me loose hope in the main character. In a part near the end, I felt very, very sad that evil might take over and that no one could stop it.

Any additional comments?

The only one thing that was not as good as I wanted it to be was that they did not talk about their early adventures from the first book in this series,
