Overview

The author of the best-selling Emily Windsnap series spins a gripping tale about a girl who stumbles into the future—and must change its course to save a friendship.

Jenni Green's family vacation has finally arrived! Even though she has to deal with her annoying little brother, her slightly overbearing dad, and her very pregnant mom, she gets to spend a week with her bestest friend in the world, Autumn. But twelve-year-old Jenni's world turns upside down when she takes an old elevator to visit Autumn and discovers that everything has changed: not only is her friend in a different condo, but tragedy has struck Autumn's family, Jenni's mother has had her baby, and everyone is a year older. When Jenni realizes that the elevator caused her to skip a whole year, she tries to go back, but soon finds that fixing things won't be as easy as pressing a button. How can she alter the past and keep her family and Autumn's from falling apart? With honesty and insight, Liz Kessler explores how the bonds of family and friendship can endure through time.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

It all changed in the elevator. When Jenni Green stepped into its compartment and pushed the button, her mother was pregnant and her best friend Autumn seemed secure and happy. When she stepped out, everything in her world changed. A year had passed; the baby had been born, and something had happened to Autumn's family. Jenni must confront a question for which nothing in her twelve years has prepared her: How can she alter the past to fix the present? A novel you can't predict and won't forget.

Publishers Weekly
Every summer 12-year-old Jenni looks forward to her family’s vacation at Riverside Village—it means spending the days with her buoyant and optimistic best friend, Autumn, and her family. But this year, a fateful elevator trip somehow transports Jenni one year into the future, and much has changed. It turns out that just hours after Jenni “left” the previous summer, Autumn’s younger brother, Mikey, was thrown from a horse and has been in a coma ever since, his family struggling to keep it together. As Jenni gradually pieces together what happened to her (and gets increasingly dire glimpses of the future through subsequent trips in the elevator), she works to return to the present and possibly avert Mikey’s accident. Kessler (the Emily Windsnap series) isn’t interested in the mechanics of time travel or even “why” Jenni’s time slip has occurred (as Jenni reflects, “What matters is the fact that it has”). Rather, it’s a vehicle, occasionally heavy-handed but effective, for her story’s empowering message: “Don’t just accept the life you’re given.... Question everything. Always attempt the impossible.” Ages 9–12. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
Preteen readers will likely be swept up in the suspense of Jenni's journeys back and forth in time.
—Kirkus Reviews
Kirkus Reviews

Time travel to a disturbing near future forces a preteen to cope for the first time without the help of her best friend.

Twelve-year-old Jenni Green and her best friend Autumn are inseparable. Along with their families, they even spend their summer vacations together every year at Riverside Village. There's so much to do there, from hot air balloon rides to adventure parks. Though Jenni naturally prefers museums to rock climbing, Autumn is always roping her into one crazy activity or another.This summer doesn't seem any different, until a ride in an old elevator lands Jenni in the middle of a strange and unsettling time-travel adventure all on her own. For the first time in her friendship with Autumn, Jenni must take the reins and figure out how to change the past in order to protect the ones she loves in the future. Jenni's first-person narration gives readers a ringside seat to her disorientation. Will she be able to save her friendship with Autumn and spare both of their families the heartache of a looming tragedy? Only time will tell.

Though the logistics of Jenni's time travel are a bit convoluted and the characters often feel disappointingly flat, preteen readers will likely be swept up in the suspense of Jenni's journeys back and forth in time. (Fantasy. 9-12)

    Good Book

    This book has actually made me a little scared and freaked out. But then when i finished reading it, i was actually amazed that the old elavator was kind of 'magic'. I really reccomend for 3rd - 5th graders. :)

    Heavy, heavy theme

    This book was not what I was expecting. It is heavy, emotional, and pessimistic. This is not a fun, light- hearted, adventure. I originally bought it for my 11 year old niece who is a huge reader. I changed my mind and read it myself. Soooo glad I did. This is a very heavy book for a 5th grader!

    Jenni Green has a perfectly normal life with punctual parents, an annoying younger brother and a FABULOUS best friend. She has no idea how much her life is about to change. It all starts when she goes to visit Autumn, her best friend, in her condo. Add an old elevator, mysteriously working, time travel, tragedy and of course:
    &quot;a HAPPY ending&quot; and there you have it. The result: A year without Autumn.

    This book is great, but at times a little suspenseful and heavy, but overall its great and ou can really feel the haracter emotions and empathize with them great book. some said they would recommend for 3rd through 5th graders, but I would recommend it for girls 10 to 15 or even older because even though the characters are 12 age doesnt play a big part in this book. I was freaking out every time she had issues with the elevator! spoiler warning and when she went up to the highest level and there was no elevator I was so so scared I was freaking out and sweating! its great overall haha sorry I said great so many times

    The book I can't forget.

    I read this book in 6th grade, but it has stuck with me ever since. I'm so glad I found it and I look forward to rereading it!

    I would recomend it to anyone in the middleschool age range, though I think teens/adults could enjoy this easy read as well.
