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.

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 plays a fascinating game with time, and explores the
changes that take place in friendships and families in the aftermath of a
disaster.

Praise for A Year without Autumn

  • 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. - TEEN TITLES - Rebecca Renwick, Forrester High

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

  • Absolutely gripping! - THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE

  • It is a brilliant family evocation as well as a thought provoking and intruiging good read - SCHOOL LIBRARIAN

  • I was so enthralled, it didn't take me very long at all to finish this one ... a simple, quick and enjoyable read. - STEPPING OUT OF THE PAGE
