“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
― Madeleine L’Engle
Madeleine L’Engle’s best-known book, the Newbery-winning science fiction novel, A Wrinkle in Time, was rejected by at least 26 publishers before its 1962 publication for being, in her words, too hard, too different, and too groundbreaking. It was ultimately published as a children’s book.
