Madeleine L'Engle is a household name, with A Wrinkle in Time selling millions of copies across editions, and the 2018 film adaptation offered commercial coverage for this legendary creator.

Charlotte Jones Voiklis is Madeleine L'Engle's granddaughter; she lived with her grandmother during college and graduate school and has intimate access to her letters and personal memories.
Voiklis and Adams focus on the universal struggles of childhood (fitting in, community, identity), providing gentle and inspiring resolutions to these conflicts.

Madeleine struggled with anxiety as a child, and the authors deftly weave in strategies that children can use to self-soothe, contextualize their situation, and find confidence in their own ideas.
