    A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK
    AMAZON EDITORS' 20 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR PICK
    "Reminiscent of Liane Moriarty's What Alice Forgot and Kate Atkinson's Life After Life, Oona Out of Order is a delightfully freewheeling romp." —Booklist (starred review)

    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.
    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 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...
    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 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.
    A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

    March 9, 2020
    In Montimore’s whimsical second novel (after Asleep from Day), a woman experiences the unsettling effects of time travel. In Brooklyn on New Year’s Eve, 1982, the day before college student Oona Lockhart’s 19th birthday, Oona is more interested in the rock band she has just joined, and particularly its guitarist, Dale. As the ball drops, Oona feels an odd sensation (“Escalating heat stirred within her as particles scrambled to escape and rearrange, but not now and not here”), and then finds herself in the body of her 51-year-old self in 2015, surprised to be living in a brownstone instead of the SoHo loft she’d imagined sharing with Dale. There, a personal assistant recites a message from Oona’s younger self explaining that she will be bouncing around in time through all the years of her life, hitting each only once, always making the change as the new year begins. As the years flash forward and back, Oona comes to life as a reckless club kid, a grieving older woman, and a wife who has no memory of her husband. Montimore sustains the concept by rooting the story in Oona’s relationships, employing sparkling humor as Oona struggles to make sense of each year’s new circumstances. This witty, fantastical exploration of life’s inevitable changes is surprising and touching.

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Brittany Pressley recounts the story of Oona Lockhart and her transformative time travels. The story begins in 1982 in New York City as Oona is celebrating her nineteenth birthday on New Year's Eve and soon jumps to the year Oona is 51. As the story continues, Oona travels back and forth between various periods in her life. Using tones of both melancholy and cheerfulness, Pressley engagingly describes Oona's feelings and the unexpected changes that take place. Pressley is fluid in her descriptions and adds intrigue to each decade hop. Montimore's character-driven novel is a fresh spin on time travel and the moments of self-discovery that occur throughout a life. D.Z. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine

    Starred review from June 1, 2020

    On the eve of her 19th birthday--which is also New Year's Eve--Oona is having the celebration of her life, madly in love, about to embark on a dream-come-true band tour. But when she awakes, she's jumped forward in time to 2015--landing in a huge house and watched over by her personal assistant, Kenzie, who must convince her (again) of what is actually happening. Shock and denial must settle into acceptance that every New Year will begin with her life out of order. Her only constants are her free-spirted mother, Madeleine, and Kenzie, who might prove to be Oona's most important link of all. Skilled, sensitive narrator Brittany Pressley nimbly ages every which way with Montimore's (Asleep from Day) chronologically challenged protagonist. Pressley is marvelous as discombobulated Oona, few-holds-barred but supportive Madeleine, and clever and sparkling Kenzie, but she's just as affecting with the rest of Montimore's vast cast--including too-close-to-perfect Dale, skeezy British wannabe chef Edward, smugly manipulative Francesca, and fiercely controlled adoptive mother Shivani. VERDICT This is thought-provoking, fantastically narrated entertainment for broad audiences.--Terry Hong, Smithsonian BookDragon, Washington, DC
