A Wrinkle in Time

Question: I get that Meg is in trouble for hitting Veronica in the face with a basketball, but why isn't Veronica in trouble for leaving a mean note on Meg's locker and calling her brother crazy?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: Could be a matter of severity. Hitting someone in the face with a basketball could result in someone being permanently injured or disfigured, possibly even blinded. Leaving mean notes and calling someone crazy is far less serious and might not warrant being punished other than a mild reprimand.

Question: How is it that Meg and Charles' mother has not noticed that her children were gone?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: Just like in the book, the children travelled in time as well as space. From the mother's perspective, they were only gone for a short while.

Question: When Meg returns with her father, did she still have to write apology letters to Principal Jenkins and Veronica?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: With Meg's father returning after four years, her mother probably had other things on her mind than Meg's punishment. But with all Meg had learned about kindness and love, she might have decided to write the letters anyway.
