Author(s): Carole Wilkinson
Nic is left in the care of her grandfather at the remote family property that was once her mother's childhood home; a place with thirty rooms, three dogs and no mobile reception. Left to her own devices, she searches for clues about her mother - who died the day Nic was born. But when Nic learns how to slip through time, she discovers more than she could have imagined. The past holds a dark and shocking secret that haunts the land and the people who live there.
I can't go past a book about time-travel so this book simply had to be read. It's an excellent combination of a girl learning to fit into a new school and learning about her family, with some Australian history involving Aborigines, settlers, and human rights. Great for ages 10 +.
