"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.

I borrowed this book while I was waiting for the author's most recent book (Acts of Violet) to become available through Libby, and I'm glad I did. Oona was a compelling character who had me caring about her from the very beginning. Most publisher and bookseller reviews seem to like the phrase "Remarkably inventive" to describe the book. I will simply say that it is an interesting and captivating narrative technique and plot structure (leaping around in time, living your life out of order, never knowing what year it will be when you wake up on January 1st). Her story had me teary in certain places and pulling for her in others. It was mind-boggling in places, trying to figure out how she could know what when, so I recommend reading it straight through, if possible, for greatest enjoyment.
I've read that a series adaptation is in the works at Amazon and am looking forward to seeing it!

The concept of this book, time traveling in your own life, is fascinating. Reading during my own birthday, I started writing letters to myself from different ages, both past and future. This could be a great book group book as some people are going to love it and some are going to hate it, all for different reasons -- that always makes for the best conversations! ( )

A quirky novel about Oona who on Jan 1 of each year (her birthdate) beginning at age 18, she leaps to a different year. Sometimes she?s older than herself and sometimes younger. It is quite a ride. Kirkus: What would you say to your younger self if you could give her advice??Wise beyond their years? is an expression we?ve all heard before. But for one Brooklyn teen, that saying becomes all too real when an unexplained event causes her to begin living her adult life in random order. On New Year?s Eve 1982, Oona Lockhart is about to turn 19. Change is on the horizon, as she must decide whether to leave school to tour with her band, Early Dawning, or quit the band to continue her studies in London. Does she follow her loving boyfriend and band mate, Dale, or does she make a stable, independent decision for herself? Almost as if standing on a precipice between past and future, Oona finds it important to tell herself: ?Remember this party. Every second of it. Every person here.? When the clock strikes midnight, she opens her eyes to a reality far different from the one she'd been experiencingand decades later. The abrupt shift sets the pace for the rest of the book¥it turns out that even when you?re living life out of order, time passes just as quickly. Right as you settle in with one version of Oona, whether it be free-spirited, club-going Oona or middle-aged investor Oona, it?s almost New Year?s again. The effect is something like narrative jet lag, making it impossible to feel grounded in time. Which is, no doubt, the point. Montimore (Asleep From Day, 2018) is not afraid to wrench Oona from one season of life to another, satisfied with ending a year in a fashion as incomplete as this: ?She didn?t get a chance to finish her sentence.? These vignettes, removed from linear neatness, celebrate the unpredictability and imperfect nature of life. Even when Oona has the opportunity to leave notes for the next version of herself, it doesn?t always mean she?ll follow her advice. With each temporal shift, Oona is left longing for what came before, but supporting characters like Oona?s mom, Madeleine, and confidante, Kenzie, serve as talismans that guide her back to the present. In the end, we must give credit to Oona for finding joy and even humor in her situation and to Montimore for developing a complex narrative held together by simple truths. Read this to get a bit lost, to root for a character with a strong love for herself, and to connect on a deeply human level with the fear of leading an incomplete life.A heartfelt novel that celebrates its implausibility with a unique joie de vivre.
