this is disturbing and confusing. Why would they challenge it though?

Meg Murry’s little brother Charles Wallace is a misunderstood child genius. Meg is just an awkward teenage misfit--impatient and stubborn and angry about it to boot. Meg is also missing her father, who disappeared on top-secret government work and, on this particular dark and stormy night, Meg is also dealing with a very odd stranger who’s been blown off course and taken shelter in the Murry’s kitchen. The visitor is Mrs. Who and she’s here to lead Meg, Charles Wallace, and their neighbor Calvin O’Keefe (as popular in school as Meg is plain) on a journey to find Mr. Murry and restore him to his family—an act which will, in its own way, restore a much-needed sense of balance to the world in which the Murrays live. This journey will take the young trio through space and time by means of a tesseract—a wrinkle in the fabric of time—which, to put it mildly, is a very unique way to travel. A Wrinkle in Time is fantastic science fiction. It’s about time travel, dystopian societies, family, romance, and the good old-fashioned struggle to grow up. Madeleine L’Engle won the Newberry Award for her book, the first of a quintet about the Murry family and their various sci-fi travels. The series quickly became classics, but A Wrinkle in Time remains the best-known and best-loved of L’Engle’s books. This is because Meg is a prickly, realistic teenage heroine with a wonderfully understanding family, Mrs. Who and her companions (Mrs. What and Mrs. Which) are delightfully quirky, and their adventure is ultimately about recognizing your flaws, turning them into strengths, and accepting yourself for who you really are.

I would recommend this book because it gives you many different perspectives from different character and it lets you enter another world full of science.
