It's New Year's Eve and there's trouble on the timeline. Elle is sent on an urgent trip to the 31st of December 1999, the eve of the new millennium, where Millennia's on the rampage. She aims to reinvent herself as a malevolent millennial by taking on Time itself.

Can Millennia change the past to destroy the future? It can't be left to chance. It's up to Elle and The Infinites to save the world. And with the very nature of time at stake, they'll have unexpected help from friends in high places.

It's the final countdown. And it starts now . . .

Patience Agbabi was born in London in 1965 to Nigerian parents, spent her teenage years living in North Wales and now lives in Kent with her husband and children. She has been writing poetry for over twenty years, The Infinite, the first in the Leap Cycle series was her first novel for children.


The Infinite is vivid, funny, exciting and inventive. But there are books that are all those things and still don't work. This works brilliantly, and the characters are so delightful that I don't think anyone could fail to like them. I was so fond of Elle and Big Ben that I'd have followed them anywhere. Patience Agbabi has created something fresh and original here, and I look forward very much to what she writes next -PHILIP PULLMAN

A fascinating, original and smart adventure tale with a rhythmic prose style that leaps off the page into scintillating life. It has a magic all of its own -BERNARDINE EVARISTO

This time-travelling tale is a thrilling adventure with brilliant characters. Imaginative, unusual, exciting and funny -The Week Junior

The Infinite is so adventurous that it lit up parts of my brain I didn't know I had. Patience Agbabi has caused a wonderful supernova deep in the literary universe . . . Elle is curious, questioning and fearless. What an inspiration. The future just got so much better -BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

Highly original . . . It's 2048 and kids have gone missing. It's up to Elle and a cadre of friends to unravel what's really going on across time -Observer
