A Year Without Autumn

The only thing unpredictable about Jenni Green’s life is her best friend Autumn, the carefree, fun-loving maven of new adventures. When Jenni stumbles upon a strange old elevator, her life skips ahead a year, and everything is different. Autumn, her parents, her hair–all changed because of one awful event.

Liz Kessler‘s A Year Without Autumn is Jenni’s coming-of-age/time travel story. Through her desire to change the future, Jenni becomes assertive and courageous enough to go back in time and try to change that one horrible day.

It’s a great book to discuss friendship, regrets and personality, and it’s a good fit if you liked Rebecca Stead’s When You Reach Me.
