A Year without Autumn by Liz Kessler
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

If you could see into the future - would you look? Jenni Green doesn't have a choice. On her way to visit her best friend, Autumn, Jenni suddenly finds she's been transported exactly one year forward in time. Now she discovers that in the year that's gone by, tragedy has struck and her friendship with Autumn will never be the same again. But what caused the tragedy? How did Jenni skip a year? And can she find her way back to the past to try to change what lies ahead? With humour - and her customary light touch - the author of the Emily Windsnap books (click here) plays a fascinating game with time, and explores the changes that take place in friendships and families in the aftermath of a disaster.

Synopsis

A Year without Autumn by Liz Kessler

Jenni and Autumn have always been best friends, but a tragedy looms that will leave their friendship in tatters - unless Jenni can find a way to escape time and change the future.

Reviews

'Absolutely gripping!' The Good Book Guide

'I liked Liz Kessler's pacey compelling style ... and the skilful way in which she places her timeslip device so carefully in modern life that it seems surprisingly plausible' - School Librarian

'This is an amazing book, I really liked it because the characterisation is amazing - you can really imagine what they all look like, you can feel Jenni's fear, her happiness and what it's like to have your world turned upside down.' - Rebecca Renwick, Forrester High, Teen Titles
