    • Summary: Edward finds a rock that he picks up and takes to school one day. Then the windows shatter. Suddenly, time seems to racing by, and no one knows where it’s going. The world literally starts to disintegrate around them. It’s up to Edward and his rag-tag team to deliver this magical rock (sorry, “fetch”) to a safe zone before time is gone forever.Review: It took me more than two months to finish this book. That’s really all the review it needs, but I’ll expand. I devour books, [...]


    • Warning: this review is very ramble-y.I'm REALLY sorry, this was a DNF for me. When I received this book I was super excited, despite the fact Middle Grade books and I have a love/hate relationship. The premise sounded so interesting! And, I am very fond of the cover. (Alert: Cover Snob coming your way) Anyway, the reason I stopped reading in that I felt the characters were flat and two things just got on my nerves.1. The main character knocks over a girl's purse because everyone knows that all [...]


    • I went to sleep last night hugging this book, literally and metaphorically. As I was drifting off it occurred to me, that this book made me feel exactly like when Calvin took Meg's hand: warm, comforted and satisfied. The teens in this book felt so unbelievably real to me, I'm pretty sure I am or, more correctly, I was Edward in high school. And to have that realism come together with great fantasy/fairy tale fiction was amazing. Best I can describe The Time Fetch is a cross between A Wrinkle in [...]


    • Originally reviewed at shelversanon/2013I almost put this book back. Looking back, I can hardly believe my own potential stupidity, but it's true. My Aussie roommate Hannah picked up The Time Fetch at BEA and offered it to me. I accepted, as it had been on my galleys-to-find list, but I had so many galleys already. If I was going to cull my stack, best to put back an MG right? I am primarily a YA blogger, after all. And I wasn't so sure I liked it.But then I started reading. And reading. And r [...]


    • First Reads Review - The Time Fetch by Amy HerrickIt's been a while since I read a young adult novel, I think. I could be wrong about that, but I found this book very enjoyable, easy to read and yet with a flourish that I appreciated, that I never really felt was talking down to me or being simplified because it wasn't written for adults. The language of the book was bold and refreshing, and the characters were fun. The story itself was a bit different, too, combining science and folklore to cre [...]


    • Rather unlikeable characters all around with a story similar (in parts) to the much better Boggart by Susan Cooper.


    • I received an advance copy of this book through a giveaway. However, besides some typographical errors and a few spacing issues, I thought this book was great.The Time Fetch sounds like kind of a silly name, but the writing was wonderful and appropriate for a YA novel. In this book, we meet a cast of four students - Edward, Feenix, Danton, and Brigit. There are also a few important adults, namely Ed's 'crazy aunt' Kit, who believes in appeasing the old gods and celebrating the solstice. The oth [...]


    • When reviewing books I often get stuck on deciding whether to judge it as objectively as possible, or if I should take some inherent facts (intended audience, story type, etc) and let that skew my rating. In this case I've decided on the latter and have given it 3 stars.The Time Fetch isn't particularly unique-- It borrows heavily from a lot of very common fairy tales and implements a lot of very common character types. You have the slightly cynical lazy boy, the weird girl, the shy girl, and th [...]


    • Herrick's solid writing and appealing characters make this an initially enjoyable read, in which magic and time and youthful carelessness combine to create an unusual tale about what happens to those seconds and minutes--even hours--that most of us never notice go missing. The fetch, a small stone-like object found by Edward, is the focus of all the trouble that follows Edward's refusal to return the fetch to someone who understands it is more than a rock, and in the last quarter of the book the [...]


    • First of all let me preface this review by saying I really enjoyed this book. I have taught both grade seven and eight and I know that the kids at that age level would be very interested and happy to give it a go. It is reminiscent of a "Wrinkle in Time," or "When You Reach Me." Edward, the main character, who is in grade eight, needs to find a "glacial moraine" somewhere in New York City and bring a sample to Mr. Ross's Science class as an assignment. His last minute antics leads him out the ba [...]


    • Geared towards middle schoolers, this story brings together four children with very different personalities. Think Breakfast Club + Back to the Future. Because if this loner, bully, popular kid and silent child don’t come together and come up with a solution, time as we know it will come to an end.Good characterization. Sometimes a bit too preachy with the author's philosophical points of view, which made the story drag a bit.


    • Interesting combination of winter solstice lore and modern connections. Good for fans of Susan Cooper's the Dark is Rising Series - definitely middle grades rather than intermediate



    • The Time Fetch is the story of four Brooklyn teenagers who come together to confront the time-eating effects of a rogue magical rock. The author, Ms. Herrick, smartly brings together the worlds of physics, metaphysics, and fairyland fantasy to create a story that is both contemporary and believable. Except when it's not.And that's where my review has to begin: with its unevenness. There are moments of true brilliance, creativity, and emotional resonance in Ms. Herrick's story, sometimes offset b [...]


    • This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here.The audio book was very competently read by Luci ChristianI rated this novel a worthy read.WARNING: UNHIDDEN SPOILERS!This is one of the rare occasions where I don’t start the review until after I finish the book, which means I have to review [...]


    • Star Rating: 4 starsNote: As this is a middle-grade book, this will not be an extensive review. I find it hard to write complex reviews on middle-grade.The Time Fetch is a story about 4 children-Edward, Feenix, Danton, and Bridget- who are thrown together after their science teacher gives them an assignment to find a rock from a glacial formation that is said to be located in their local park. Edward is your traditional slacker so he waits to the last minute to complete the assignment by stealin [...]


    • 3.5 starsThis book is geared towards middle schoolers. I really enjoyed reading this book! So much action, science, fairytale and folklore when into this. It was a fast read for me. It’s an interesting take on time and space. I thought it was going to be a time travel book but I was wrong. It deals with time but mainly what happens if time is taken from us. Everything goes into chaos.Don’t take time for granted!




    • Several other reviewers who loved this book also mention A Wrinkle in Time; not everyone will love this eccentric romp through science and folklore and fabric of space-time but apparently fans of Wrinkle will likely be fans of Fetch, too. Any book that can playfully toss around words like discombobulated along with serious scientific terms makes me happy down to my toes. And eccentric characters! From Edward's very odd philosophy of life (it was all dancing atoms; nothing was real) to his Aunt K [...]


    • I liked the idea of this book, I just didn't love the way that it was written. I think that the whole thing about time was very cool, but it just didn't quite work for me. It is a good book if you are looking for a different read.


    • The Time Fetch follows young teens Edward (Dweebo to some), Danton, Feenix (Edith to her mother), and Brigit as they discover a stone that holds time foragers, fight to restore order to their world as the time foragers rapidly eat away at their town, and struggle to grow into themselves and discover the good in those around them.I would only give The Time Fetch 2 or 3 stars out of 5, but I want to give a caveat right up front: I read this book right after a fantastic one, and I read it over a ve [...]


    • In full disclosure I won this book in a giveaway.The story itself was fairly good with some really interesting concepts that were well written. The big problem I had with this book was the characters.They were all one-dimensional, lacking any depth or interesting characteristics. They were also almost all unlikeable.Firstly there was Edward, he is lazy, uncaring, sometimes mean and a loner. He had no qualities to draw me to him and plenty to push me away.Then there was his friend Danton. He was [...]


    • The Time Fetch is a book that took a while for me to get into. I found the idea of a fetch intriguing at the start of the book and then we return to modern day to follow a group of middle or high school students. Edward is the first, who is the one who ultimately dislodges the fetch, bringing it to school, thinking it is an ordinary rock for a project in science. He’s a geek boy who wants nothing more to become invisible and just blend in. Unfortunately his neighbor Feenix seems to have differ [...]


    • I seem to be on a middle grade reading kick lately. I guess I'm looking for a book that weaves a spell around me the way 'A Wrinkle in Time' or 'The Dark is Rising' did long ago. 'The Time Fetch' looked to be a good candidate as it tells the tale of a disparate group of seventh, or eighth graders, it's never specified, who are joined together to prevent the dissolution of time that their careless actions caused. I was also chuffed at it's set in Park Slope Brooklyn (I'm a sucker for books set in [...]


    • The Time Fetch by Amy Herrick features a unique premise and a diverse group of main characters. The novel follows a group of four classmates who, though they interact daily, know very little about one another. This changes after the students are tasked with bringing a rock to school for their science class. Edward, waiting to the last minute to finish the assignment, grabs the only rock he can find on his way to school, but this isn't any ordinary rock. The rock is actually a Time Fetch, the res [...]


    • Have you ever felt like a day got away from you, or some habitual part of your daily routine has become so routine that you realize you've done it without thinking about it--without even having a memory of it? Little snippets of time like that, moments that are forgettable, trivial, are ripe for the plucking by the Old Folk who serve as the Keepers of Time. The secret of how these odds and ends of time get collected is contained within a seemingly inconspicuous object called a Fetch. Normally th [...]



    • The Time Fetch was surprisingly engrossing, drawing me in until I had read the entire thing in one sitting. The author came up with a story that was refreshingly unique, even though the reader meets stereotypical characters and may encounter difficulty mustering interest in the start of the novel. It's one of those books that requires conscious effort to get engaged in (at least for me), but I'm glad I went the extra mile because I enjoyed it.Edward is the first character the reader encounters a [...]


    • This is the type of book that I would usually devour and beg for more. I mean look at the premise, then the cover. Better yet it got a blurb from a NYT best selling author, and praises and whatnot. Unfortunately it didn't deliver for me. It fell flat and broke my middle grade enthusiastic heart into little pieces.I don't even know where to start because I had so many issues with the book.Let's talk plot. I failed to see one because it was all over the place. The book started out by making it a p [...]
