A deceptively easy-to-read, make-you-stop-and-think story from a vibrant new talent.

Things are at crisis point for 14-year-old Alice. Her mum is ruining her life, her dad’s getting remarried and she has to wear a hideous bridesmaid’s dress, she can’t stand her little brother Rory, and Sasha, the most popular girl at school, hates her guts.

Then something very odd happens: Alice falls off a roundabout and finds that she is seven years old again. Reliving the past with her 14-year-old consciousness, she gains a disconcerting new perspective on her family and friendships, and she is forced to confront the truth of her parents’ separation and question her former loyalties.

Returning to her teenage self, Alice discovers that her experience has brought about some extraordinary changes and that life will never be the same again.

Alice in Time: - More reviews

'I love the idea of being able to go back in time and change things and would love to be able to see myself aged seven with a teenager’s eye.' Sarah (teen reviewer)

'Bush’s first novel offers the message that we choose our futures, sometimes unwittingly, and subtly hints at some control over the mistakes of the past. Immensely satisfying for readers just realizing the power to make their own choices.' 
(Kirkus Reviews children's books March 2011)

'An amazing book. Cleverly written, exciting and fast-paced.'

'Engaging and deceptively undemanding novel. Alice is an appealing character girls who enjoy Cathy Cassidy and Karen McCombie will respond positively to her story.'
