This book was genuinely mysterious, and very awesome! There’s a girl named Meg, her brother, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin. The best part in the whole book, were the weird characters the author wrote about. Have you ever heard of Camazotz? That’s the name of the planet where Meg and Charles have to go to find their Dad. When you read it you will scream at some of the parts, and cry at others. If you want to read an extraordinary book, you should definitely read this one!

I loved this book. It was mysterious, it had great voice, and good organization. I thought the funniest part, was when Charles slapped the brain called “IT.” I really liked Meg’s character. She reminded me of my friend Pamela she always acts like Meg does. Reading this book really made me feel good. It made me think of the wonders of Earth.

I recommend this book because it is a super book and very interesting. I think fourth or fifth graders would really enjoy it. It has good characters, and has some really good parts. Especially if you like to travel, this book is great for you. They travel to some amazing places. Get this book and see where you'll go.
