Time for Andrew (Avon Camelot Books) by Mary Downing Hahn
Time for Andrew (Avon Camelot Books)

This is one of my favorite books. It is an easy to read book that sends the imagination flying. Drew goes to stay with his aunt over the summer while his parents are away. His room has a door to the attic where he finds a box of marbles with a note and a picture of a boy that looks like he could be Drews twin. The boy, Andrew, comes out of the attic that night and tries to make Drew get out of "his" bed. Noticing Andrew is very sick, they switch places. When Drew first goes back in time he is only concerned with getting home again and keeps comparing his life to life in 1910. Each night Drew goes to the attic to play marbles with Andrew. The deal is, when Drew beats Andrew in marbles, Drew will be allowed to return home. I have read this book many times and I have never gotten tired of reading it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
