For 12 years Winter has been haunted. Her past, her memories, her feelings, will not leave her alone. And now, at 16, the time has come for her to act. Every journey begins with a single step. If Winter is going to step into the future, she must first step into the past.

As I walked back towards Warriewood I couldn't help thinking about Matthew. Matthew Kennedy. Nice name. It was so annoying, I'd met him twice now and both times he hadn't put a foot wrong. Download and start listening now!

    " Orphaned at four years old, Australian sixteen-year-old Winter de Salis returns to her childhood home in an attempt to find out about her dead parents and her own past. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbra-Lee Stephen Author | 2/17/2014

    " I have a special place in my heart for WINTER as it is dedicated to my sister Callie Stephen. When it comes to writing about young people John Marsden is the master. Barbra-Lee "

    " Oh gosh, I don't remember this one at all apart from its pretty cover! I was never the world's hugest John Marsden fan (does that make me unAustralian?!), possibly since I never read the Tomorrow series - I loved and was driven crazy by Letters From the Inside, and also enjoyed So Much to Tell You/Take My Word For It, but not enough to add him to my lists or anything. I was way more a Paul Jennings kid. :D "

    " The ending threw me off and sometimes the main character annoyed me, but otherwise it was good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madi | 1/23/2014

    " I loved this book from when I first saw the cover Marsden has an amazing ability to get inside teenage girls heads and the protagonist winter who is a lonely teenage girl who feels misunderstood had my heart from the start. Great ending. "

    " This book was alright. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't too engaging or memorable. It's about a sixteen year old girl named Winter who goes back to her hometown, to discover the truth about her parents' deaths. It is pretty slow moving at the beginning, but it keeps you interested because the author does a good job at making the readers suspicious of several different characters. One thing I really didn't like about this book was the fact that it felt rushed towards the end. It was also a pretty short book. If you like mysteries, this could be a good book for you. The end is very shocking and disturbing, yet sad. I think this book would be perfect to make a movie out of because it reminded me of this movie I saw called "The Return" by Andrei Zvyagintsev. One thing it does is teach you to appreciate your parents and the relationship you have with them, because they could be gone any second. I wouldn't re-read this book because I don't think it stood out in my mind, I'm probably going to forget it quickly because it's short, and rushed towards the end. "

    " Im still reading this book, so far so good. I like the way John Marsden i sdescribing his charaters and the settings. The frount cover is a scary looking setting, "

    " I'm a great Marsden fan and I think this is a great story but it felt a bit rushed. A lot of story in a short book left the characters a bit underdeveloped. "

    " I really liked this book. It is probably meant for young adults, but I enjoyed it. The main character is a really strong female teenage character, which you don't see as often in books today. It was refreshing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte | 6/30/2010

    " I think this was my first proper 'favourite' book.

    I've read it about a million times, each time another subtle detail more than the last. The prose is haunting, enthralling and the characters are so easy the empathize with. Go into this with an open mind and you will be blown away. "
