A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler
This book reminded me a little bit of some of the old Twilight Zone shows that I used to watch when I was a kid.
A vacation resort.
A broken old elevator that gets fixed.
And when 12 year old Jenni rides up a floor on the elevator, she goes a year into the future.
In this future, her best friend Autumn is very different. Autumn's brother is in a coma and her family is devastated. Jenni finds that she can go back to the present but the accident that put Autumn's brother into a coma has happened anyway. She finds that for each floor that she rides on the elevator, another year passes. Is there any way that she can go back and change the past/present/whenever it is?
This is a fantastic, riveting tale of friendship and creepy time travel. You won't be able to put it down until you find out what happens!
