A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler

Jenni, her little brother and her parents visited the same park every year for a week. So did her very best friend Autumn, her little brother and parents. The day of their arrival was the same as it always was, and when the girls saw each other they were full of excitement for the week ahead.

But the plan to go horse riding the following day was thwarted by a strange and frightening occurrence for Jenni. When she finally found Autumn, everything had changed. And to Jenni’s horror it appeared she had somehow been transported one year forward – in the meantime tragedy had struck and the girls’ friendship was not the way it was.

What could Jenni do? When she discovered what had happened she knew she had to somehow go back in time to change the outcome. But could she? Was it even possible for her to do that? Or was she stuck in the future?

A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler is an fun time travel novel which I enjoyed. The adventure that surrounds Jenni was well thought out; the obvious friendship between the two girls was important. A lovely novel for tweens, A Year Without Autumn is one I recommend.

Publisher: Orion Children's Books. Jenni and Autumn are best friends, even holidaying together. Aged 12, the devastating outcome of that year's holiday results in Jenni moving backwards and forwards through the three succeeding years trying to prevent the tragedy, and friendships and relationships falling apart. Kessler combines a chatty tween novel with a serious dose of 'what if' in which a disused lift transports Jenni between the present and future years, thereby not only viewing the events but interacting with friends, family and strangers whose lives and relationships have been changed by the accident. We can read it as a coming-of-age novel, in which Jenni grows up and gains insight into others, but primarily into her own behaviour, and the responsibility she bears for events.
