Chapter One: 1. Meg often finds herself losing focus during class and getting into plenty of trouble at school, most of which is related to standing up for her family. Meg loves her family a lot, but feels as if she is not understood by them, except for Charles Wallace of course, who seems to know everything about her. 2. Charles Wallace didn’t begin talking until he was four, yet now at five, he has an incredible vocabulary and seems to know a lot more than the average five-year-old. He is also very thoughtful and often seems to look at the bigger picture of a situation. 3. There is no guarantee that Mrs. Whatsit is a friendly character, but she doesn’t appear to want to cause any harm. She just seems rather odd, almost as if she is unaware that she has done anything wrong. Also, Charles Wallace trusts Mrs. Whatsit and he seems to have a good grasp on people’s character. 4. Ending the chapter with tesseract, makes me want to continue reading, for I am curious as to what the tesseract may be. 5. While Mrs. Murry is cautious, she is also quick to let Mrs. Whatsit into her home, telling the children that if the stranger is the thief that stole the sheets, she will at least offer them the barn for the night. This tells the readers that Mrs. Murry is kind and cares about the well-being of others. Chapter Two: 1. Mr. Jenkins, as the principal, is most likely trying to help Meg to become a better student, thinking that if she accepts her father’s absence as permanent, she might stop worrying or thinking about it, which will allow more focus on her schoolwork. I do not like the way he approached the situation, though. He sat a child down and told them that their father, a person they look up to, that they love dearly, was never coming back. That’s a touch harsh, isn’t it? I also do not necessarily believe Mr. Jenkins. He has based this opinion off of someone’s gossip, most likely. There is no proof that Meg’s father won’t come back, and it seems sinister to try and demolish someone’s hope anyway. 2. Sandy and Dennys seem to move with the current. They walk amongst the crowd, blending in, fitting in, the stereotype of normal. While, the rest of their family falls into their own groove. They are different, something that is not always accepted amongst those who don’t see change in a positive manner. Though the twins love their family, they often wish that they would try to better be like everyone else, to “find a happy medium”. 3. The twins believe Meg has trouble at school because she goofs around and stares out the window all day while she should be learning. 4. After Charles Wallace asking Mrs. Who of Mrs. Whatsit’s whereabouts, she replied, "She's busy. It's getting near time, Charlsie, getting near time. Ab honesto virum bonum nihil deterret. Seneca. Nothing deters a good man from doing what is honorable. And he's a very good man, Charlsie, darling, but right now he needs our help." Chapter Three: 1. At home, Calvin is swept away in a wave of siblings, barely noticeable, while at school he is looked to be popular and on the basketball team. Meg, at school, doesn’t get the best
