Up next in the “why is this listed under this title??” category (see: 911 Short Story) is the very short story “The Shiny Thing,” found in the “Wrinkle in Time Trilogy” section.
“A Wrinkle in Time” is a favorite book of mine. I remember reading it in 3rd grade with my teacher and 2 other advanced students. That probably has a lot to do with why I am the nerd I am today. But none of that really matters, because this story has no connection at all to anything in the books. And that’s not just my opinion, 2 reviewers had the same thought, so it’s not like I’m missing something subtle here.
The story is very short, so I will be sharing it in its entirety with line-by-line snark. I know you’re excited.
