Timefire

Nean McKenzie

In the scorching summer of 2033, Gilbert Black is accused of being a firebug, just like his mother was thirteen years previously. That night a fire starts on his family’s farm. A fire with a tunnel in the centre of it. And that’s when things start to get really weird.

Pulled repeatedly back and forth through time, Gil finds himself at big Australian bushfires from the last two centuries. He searches across the years, determined to unlock the secret to his family’s legacy.

Gil can’t change the past, but can he learn from it in time to return home and save his family from the biggest inferno ever known?

Timefire is a thrilling page-turner full of intrigue and heart. A fantastic and absorbing middle-grade novel.
