KIRKUS REVIEW

Time On Her Hands is quiet hour reading for the young teenager and spends a senior school year with Abigail Harker, and Cass Pottle whom she likes, a very good athlete. Various things happen but are not necessarily resolved during the week to week continuity: there's a prospective student strike over an end of the semester arbitrary transfer to another high school; debating which Abigail takes up- a new elective course; her mother's accident which leaves Abigail to cook the Thanksgiving dinner with her father; a Christmas pageant; a basketball tournament; and a wind-up of the school year with a trip to Washington, D.C. in high cherry blossom time.... The atmosphere is wholesome, the characterization less substantial, so that this is only intermediate fiction for this intermediate group.
