A Wind in the Door

By Madeleine L’Engle

When Meg gets home from school, her younger brother, Charles Wallace, informs her that he’s seen dragons in the garden. She goes to investigate with her friend, Calvin, only to discover that a teacher has been sent to help her, CW, Calvin, and the dragon, who is really a cherubim fight an evil that is trying to kill CW.

In the last of the Time quartet, Meg, CW, and Calvin had to fight a big evil. This time they are fighting an evil that has attacked the mitochondria inside CW. Once again the reader is sent upon a wild ride that mixes science with imagination.

It is amazing how L’Engle can take these difficult scientific topics and turn them into stories for children.
