I’m not done it yet but

It’s a good book, it should have come earlier in the series (should have been book 3) so far there was only one sexual reference. It isn’t a bad book because of the references just make it uncomfortable for kids under 11ish. The author (Madeline L’enge) did a good job with this book and it’s sad she has passed away, but as I said the book should have come earlier in the series as the twins are teenagers meg is in college and Calvin is in graduate school, when is the previous book the twins, meg and Calvin are fully grown adults and Charles Wallace is 15, so the timing is off but the author probably came up with this idea after the third book. This was a long review for someone who hasn’t even finished the book but I made a pact with myself that any title I look at I have to review as well. Minor violence. And there’s a minor sexual reference in every one of this author’s books

Sequel with more sex than previous stories

I was really suprised by the amount of sex in this book. When I started this when I was like 8, I didn't get any of the references. But almost as soon was we got to when they go to the desert, someone mentions that you need to be a virgin to get on an unicorn. And part of the story is that a girl is trying to seduce Sandy or Dennys into having sex. She doesn't say it outright, but it is very implied. And there were several references among these. However, I was really interested about the Noah's ark story wound into this. I thought it was really cool and I loved getting to see Sandy and Denny's have a story for themselves.
