|Plot Summary of Time For The Stars|
|"When twin brothers must cope first with being seperated and then must survive both alien monsters and the effects of time, they find solace by communicating through their telepathic abilities. A quote by the main character, "It is mighty lonesome to start off somewhere by yourself when you've always done it with someone," nicely sums up this imaginative, suspenseful, well created, sci-fi classic."
Michael Conner, Resident Scholar
