As the countdown to the new year begins, Oona feels lightheaded, woozy, and it's not from the champagne. At the stroke of midnight Oona is torn from her life and everyone she loves, finding herself in her 51 year old body thirty-three years into the future. Greeted by a friendly stranger in a beautiful house she's told is her own, Oona learns that will with each passing year she will leap to another age at random.

    *Starred Review* For Oona Lockhart, New Year's Eve isn't just an excuse to throw on a sparkly dress and pop a bottle of bubbly. It's also the final day of understanding her place in the world, teetering on the precipice of what she calls "time leaps." Oona's memory issues are complicated, but she's learned to expect that every January she wakes up in a different year. She lives her life non-chronologically, leaping from the Uber/iPhone peak of 2015 to the height of the club kid craze in 1991 to the questionable fashion choices of 1983. The time leaps are confusing, to say the least, but Oona has a bit of guidance in the form of a handwritten letter from her earlier self to explain the highs and lows of the upcoming year, and her mother, Madeleine, her bedrock. While many of us may feel that our internal age doesn't match our external appearance, Montimore (Asleep from Day, 2018) takes that conceit to its witty, humorous, heartwarming extreme. Imbued with musical and cultural influences spanning decades and reminiscent of Lianne Moriarty's What Alice Forgot (2011) and Kate Atkinson's Life after Life (2013), Oona Out of Order is a delightfully freewheeling romp.
