A Wind In The Door by Madeline L'Engle
A Wrinkle in Time Quintet Boxed Set - I loved this series as a child, and read all of Madeleine L'Engle when I was young.
Madeleine L'Engle (November 29, 1918 Ð September 6, 2007) was an American writer best known for her young-adult fiction, particularly the Newbery Medal-winning A Wrinkle in Time and its sequels: A Wind in the Door, National Book Award-winning A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time. Her works reflect both her Christian faith and her strong interest in modern science.
