Format: Paperback
Oh, the dimensions we delve into! You feel a full-circle journey! I equate it with a <i> “Star Trek, The Next Generation”</i> storyline. In <i> “The Inner Light”</i>, the crew passes an expired planet and experiences the lifetime of its citizens. Memories are impressed upon them. “<b>Time For Andrew”</b> doesn’t resemble that, except in the scope of a stunning emotional journey. It has the beginnings of a ghost story, that plunges into a time travel trade. I couldn’t have guessed how much I would be enthralled by it.

<i>‘Drew’</i> spends a summer posing as his great-great-uncle, <i>‘Andrew’</i>, at the same house in 1910. Historically he died; with his elder sister, <i>‘Hannah’</i> watching over him in the bedroom <i>Drew</i> is using. <i>Drew</i> is visiting his great-aunt while his archaeologist parents are in France. Great-Aunt’s Father (his Dad’s Grandpa) lives with her. It is fascinating to find so many things recognizable in 1910: the land and small details like dusty attic discards, suddenly seen around the house in full use. Experiences with a far greater impact are unforgettable. <i>Drew</i> learns the joy of siblings and also loves his temporary parents, even though he’s desperate to return to his decade. He agreed to stay long enough for modern medicine to heal <i>Andrew</i>. The look-a-likes traded beds at a critical moment, to save him.

The novel centers around <i>Andrew’s</i> refusal to leave 1994, insisting he will switch back only if <i>Drew</i> beats him at marbles. It becomes urgent that they do. Each is forgetting the details of their worlds. Also pivotal is <i>Andrew’s</i> need to outgrow aggression, while <i>Drew</i> needs thicker skin.

"Time for Andrew a ghost story", was a great book! I give this book a 5 star raiting, because it was fun to read and was very clear and understandible. It had a good plot and good characters that all played their parts nicely. I enjoyed how the ending was very clear, and it didn't leave me hanging on anything. I would recomend this book to anyone who enjoys reading a great story.

Time For Andrew is written by Mary Downing Hahn. It is published by Avon books. Time For Andrew was published in 1994. Do you like mysterious books?
Drew is visiting Aunt Blythe for two months. He hears cries and starts to see things. Then he finds Andrew, who has diptheria. Andrew wants to switch with Drew for a cure. Drew agrees.
When Drew goes to bed one night during a storm he sees the attic door open. That's when he meets Andrew.
" You can't be alive," Drew whispered, "you can't - it's impossible."
" Do I look as bad as that?" Andrew asked. "Dr. Fulton told Mama I was like to die before morning, but he saved me from blood poisoning last year and the measles the year before that, and cough and whooping cough as well. Hannah lived through diptheria. She says I will too."
Others will like this book because it is very interesting and mysterious. Drew is not realistic. You will find mysterious things happening throughout this book. At times it will make you shiver. If you like mystery and ghost books, you will like this book.
I would give Time For Andrew a 1 with1 being the best.

I think that this is the best book i've ever read. ...I normally dont like to read books but when I saw this book I couldnt let it go. The book is about 2 kids who are like twins. they look the same and they they have the same name. This kid drew goes to his aunt blythes house for his summer vacation instead of going to a camp. When he gets there his first impression of the house is creepy. The house is verry old and broken down. Wonce he gets comfortable with the house he starts getting scared cause he heres noises in the basement. When he goes down to see what it is he finds out it is a verry sick kid down there rummaging down there. The kid is andrew and he is sick with diptheria. So they trade places so andrew can get better and can get a cure because in andrews time they didnt have a cure. So lateron he gets better but doesnt want to trade back so he makes a deal that they had to play a game caller marbles for there places back. But in the mean time drew is facing all andrews problems. There is WAY this story so if your going to read this have fun. Its a great story.

In fact I don't no which is better! I'm Ten and I loved this book. Time for Andrew is a story about two kids that are related, both named Andrew and are identical but from 2 totally different time zones. One is from 1910 and the other is from 1990 and they have the exact opposite personalities. One is rough and doesn't get picked on but the other is weak and can't defend himself. When they first meet the Andrew from 1910 is almost dead with Diptheria. The two Andrews switch places in time. Well what the Andrew from 1990 found out is that once the Andrew from 1910 is healed he doesn't want to switch back. To be able to go back to his regular time period he has to play ringer a game he doesn't know how to play and beat the other Andrew. The book is a good mystery and has lots of suspense.
