With her little brother Charles and friend Calvin, Meg travels by tesseract, a wrinkle in space-time, on a treacherous journey that leads them into space and to the heart of the terrible struggle between the Dark Thing and the galaxy. Can Meg rescue her father and will they all return home safely? A spell binding science fiction and family adventure.
