    Oh, the dimensions we delve into You feel a full circle journey I equate it with a Star Trek, The Next Generation storyline In The Inner Light , the crew passes an expired planet and experiences the lifetime of its citizens Memories are impressed upon them Time For Andrew 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 Drew spends a summer posing as his great great uncle, Andrew , at the same house in 1910 Historically he died with his elder sister, Hannah watching over him in the bedroom Drew is using Drew 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 Drew 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 Andrew The look a likes traded beds at a critical moment, to save him.The novel centers around Andrew s refusal to leave 1994, insisting he will switch back only if Drew beats him at marbles It becomes urgent...

    He saw a ghost in the window when he first arrived, a flash of white in an upstairs window, like a face, and felt he was being watched I don t like when ghost stories begin the first second the character arrives at the location Let s just ease into it.Andrew overheard his parents talking about him to his aunt His dad said he s insecure, worries, is nervous and afraid and has too big of an imagination His mom said he s scared of the dark, afraid of witches under his bed and monsters in the closet I felt bad for him being talked about like that.His great grandpa was so mad that they named him Andrew that he left after the christening and never saw them again, never even sent Andrew a birthday card The family had a Captain Andrew Joseph Tyler and some Andrew barged into the room with Great Grandfather and the old man was afraid of him, said he d come back but it was no good because it was his house now He thought Andrew was a wicked boy Andrew heard the upstairs creaking like someone was walking He smelled roast chicken only to go to the kitchen and see that Aunt Blythe was making spaghetti.Andrew noticed that everything in the house was old and had belonged to people who are dead now He quickly came to question Aunt Blythe, on his first night there, if those people are still here Aunt Blythe believed echoes o...

    I had read a number of Mary Downing Hahn books before reading Time for Andrew, so imagine my surprise when I realized that Time for Andrew isn t really a ghost story at all it s a timeslip story There are some scarier elements to Time for Andrew, compared to most timeslip stories think Tom s Midnight Garden or Charlotte Sometimes , but it s not scary like many of Downing Hahn s ghost stories.In Time for Andrew, Andrew goes to visit his Aunt Blythe who lives an old house that his family has lived in for decades While Andrew is there, he meets a child version of his great great uncle who looks eerily like Andrew and is transported into the past.I like timeslip stories, so I did like Time for Andrew, but a reader looking for like Wait Till Helen Comes, Deep and Dark and Dangerous, or The Old Willis Place may be disappointed Of the Downing Hahn books I ve read, Time for Andrew is probably most like The Doll In The Garden, but it s not even as creepy as that o...

    Time for Andrew is an otherwise great juvenile chapter book with two significant issues First off, the cover s statements that Time for Andrew is A Ghost Story and Very spooky are both misleading Instead of being a creepy tale in the vein of R L Stine s Goosebumps, this is a time travel...

    This was a very interesting book, it was a good story But I didn t think it was really a ghost story because Andrew was technically not a ghost, just a person stuck in time.
