Amazon.com Review\nAn Amazon Best Book of February 2020: The Time Traveler’s Wife meets What Alice Forgot in this charming and cinematic novel that this reviewer devoured in 24 hours. Oona Lockhart is celebrating New Year’s Eve 1982 and the eve of her 19th birthday, but at midnight she passes out and wakes up as a 19-year-old trapped in the body of a 51-year-old. Thus begins Oona living life out of order—every January 1st going forward, at 12:01 am, she wakes up as herself in a different year of life. Each year brings its own challenges of piecing together her accomplishments, friends and lovers, and mistakes. As Oona writes to herself in a letter to be found after one “leap”: “Every leap will have its advantages and disadvantages, things you’ll gain and lose—relationships, youth, modern conveniences, etc.” Although this could be a fun romp through the adage “youth is wasted on the young” (and at times, it is), it’s also a deeper look at destiny, love, and family. The only thing I didn’t like is that I wish I could read about every year of Oona’s life. Oona Out of Order is incredibly fun and begs to be read in book clubs. —Sarah Gelman, Amazon Book Review\nNATIONAL BESTSELLER\nA GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK\n”With its countless epiphanies and surprises, Oona proves difficult to put down.” ―USA Today\n”By turns tragic and triumphant, heartbreakingly poignant and joyful, this is ultimately an uplifting and redemptive read.” ―The Guardian\nA remarkably inventive novel that explores what it means to live a life fully in the moment, even if those moments are out of order.\nIt’s New Year’s Eve 1982, and Oona Lockhart has her whole life before her. At the stroke of midnight she will turn nineteen, and the year ahead promises to be one of consequence. Should she go to London to study economics, or remain at home in Brooklyn to pursue her passion for music and be with her boyfriend? As the countdown to the New Year begins, Oona faints and awakens thirty-two years in the future in her fifty-one-year-old body. Greeted by a friendly stranger in a beautiful house she’s told is her own, Oona learns that with each passing year she will leap to another age at random. And so begins Oona Out of Order…\nHopping through decades, pop culture fads, and much-needed stock tips, Oona is still a young woman on the inside but ever changing on the outside. Who will she be next year? Philanthropist? Club Kid? World traveler? Wife to a man she’s never met? Surprising, magical, and heart-wrenching, Margarita Montimore has crafted an unforgettable story about the burdens of time, the endurance of love, and the power of family.
