Boy meets his double from many years ago

Borders Books & Music in Bowie holds a discussion group for kids in fourth through sixth grade Tuesday. Participants will analyze the 1994 book "Time for Andrew: A Ghost Story" by Mary Downing Hahn.

Andrew is a 12-year-old who's been sent to his great-aunt's 19th-century house in Missouri for the summer so his parents can join an archaeological dig in France. Almost immediately, Andrew has the uneasy feeling he's being watched. But by whom?

He soon gets his answer - while exploring his aunt's attic, he comes face to face with his look-alike, a boy gravely sick with diphtheria. Somehow, the boy has managed to appear from the year 1910.

As unlikely as the situation seems, the two boys decide to put their heads together to come up with a plan to save the sick boy's life. And the adventure begins.

Read the book and meet at 7 p.m. at the Bowie bookstore, 4420 Mitchellville Road, 301-352-5560.
