Just because life may be out of order, doesn't mean it's broken. It'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 in her 51 year old body thirty-two years into the future. 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...
Hopping 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 traveller? Wife to a man she's never met? Oona Out of Order is a remarkably inventive novel that explores what it means to live a life fully in the moment, even if those moments are out of sequence.
Surprising, magical, and heart wrenching, Montimore has crafted an unforgettable story about the burdens of time, the endurance of love, and the power of family.
