Genre: Science Fiction
Grade Level: Grades 6-7
Readers who will like this: Imaginative students who ponder spacial possibilities like time travel will love this book. Girls will like that there can be a female heroine in a science fiction book.
Rating/Response: 8/10. A very interesting book that causes you to look at the world in a different light. L’Engle’s theories will make you second guess what is possible as far as time and space.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: If you could travel back in time, where would you go and what would you do?
