Product description

If you could see into the future – would you look? On her way to visit her best friend Autumn, Jenni suddenly finds herself transported exactly one year forward in time. But in that year, a terrible tragedy has struck. 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 into the past, to change the future ahead? Written with humour and lightness, this extraordinary time-slip novel explores the changes that affect friendships and families in the aftermath of a disaster.

“Readers will be gripped… A thought-provoking story.” The Bookbag

    An amazing book and an amazing author. A year without autumn is a book which is real unique, different from other books. Also, this book is really interesting and gripping.

    I thought this book particularly stood out from the rest as it wasn’t like those saccharine books which have a happy ending and it was also very interesting and yes i couldn’t put it down and it is the best book i read

    Liz Kessler is such an amazing author. I particularly loved this book and how she so cleverly combined the magic and mystery to the real world. I couldn’t put it down!

    I really enjoyed this book- I read it through twice in less than 24 hours! The only thing I’d say is that the first time you read it, don’t read it just before you go to bed because some of it can be a bit upseting to younger readers. Hope you enjoy it! :-)

    I loved this book, because the characters are so wonderful and different in their own ways. I loved watching the story develop, and wanted to read it again as soon as I’d finished. This is a wonderful book, and I think every girl and boy should read it.

    If I could write this review in one word, I would use UN-PUT-DOWN-A-BLE! I managed to read this book in about three days. This book is definitely worthy of 5*.

    My favourite character is Mikey because he is a very realistic young boy who is addicted to gaming, even when he is on holiday.

    I thoroughly recommend this book.

    Liz Kessler made this book amazing. It has a fantastic plot line, and believable characters. But what I really liked was the end. You think that the book is over on a happy ending, but you turn the page and there is more… This book is fantastic, it made me laugh, cry and feel unforgettable pain. I was there with the characters, experiencing their emotions. A Year Without Autumn is incredible.
