According to CNN, (cnn.com) the author of several award winning books for children passed away this Thursday of natural causes.

I distinctly remember the first time I read A Wrinkle in Time and how interesting and challenging I found it to be at that age. Having recently reread the whole series because my two older kids wanted to read them, I was amazed at how well the books held up some 30 years after I first read them.

RIP Ms. L'Engle.

I've only read the first two books in the series, but she had a fantastic way of writing that managed to be accessible without being dumb.

As an adolescent, the books in the Time series were among my favorites. It's hard to find books that are as well written and challenging for young people as those books. RIP.

And the reason it has been good is that it is self contained and not forced to interbreed with the rest of the convoluted DC Universe. Nothing a crossover can't fix though.
