Perfect for fans of Alex Scarrow and Michael Grant, this is the first in an incredible new time-travel trilogy by the author of The Afterblight Chronicles: School's Out Forever. New York City, 2141: Yojana Patel throws herself off a skyscraper, but never hits the ground.

When she reaches out to comfort the dying woman, she's flung through time. On a rainy night in present-day Cornwall, seventeen-year-old Kaz Cecka sneaks into the long-abandoned Sweetclover Hall, in search of a dry place to sleep.
