    Later note Had discussion with author about this book and why it means so much to so many people specifically women Also read excellent NYTimes piece about the fiftieth anniversary Some books are powerful for their readers because of their context in this case, the utter lack in popular kid s literature of 1962 of characters like Meg real girls, who cared about atypical subjects like math, who were unashamed to
