Rewind Files author Claire Willett shares a list of her favorite chrono-jumping ladies from movies, books and television!
6. Meg Murry (from A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle)
When I was but a wee Clairelet, I loved any book with a plucky, smart-mouthed girl heroine who was kind of a pain in the ass, and Meg was one of my favorites: smart but stubborn, loving and flawed, with a deeply relatable relationship to her deeply weird family and wonderfully human reactions to all the crazy adventures that befall her. I wanted a Mrs. Whatsit of my own so bad.
