Summary

The Good Morning America Book Club Pick.

Amazon Editors' 20 Best Books of the Year.

Oona's life is out of order.

Brooklyn, 1982. Oona Lockhart is about to celebrate her 19th birthday and ring in the New Year. But at the stroke of midnight, she finds herself in her fifty-one-year-old body, thirty-two years into the future.

Every birthday, Oona leaps into a different year of her life at random. Still young on the inside, but ever changing on the outside, who will she be next year? Nineties Club Kid? World traveller? Wife to a man she's never met?

As the years pass, Oona must learn to navigate a life that's out of order...but is it broken?

Surprising, magical and poignant, Margarita Montimore's debut is an uplifting joyride through an ever-changing world that shows us what it means to truly live for now.

Critic reviews

"With its countless epiphanies and surprises, Oona proves difficult to put down." (USA Today)

"By turns tragic and triumphant, heartbreakingly poignant and joyful, this is ultimately an uplifting and redemptive read." (Guardian)

Entertaining and original

I enjoyed the book; well read except for the English accent. A very easy listen and kept me engaged.

I wanted to love it.

It was a really smart concept. However I personally found the beginning too slow and the end to sudden. It felt that all the potential for interesting revelations was completely missed. In the end I was left slightly unsatisfied.
