Out of Time

Author: Caroline Cooney
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

The book Out of Time by Caroline Cooney, I like most of all because it is mysterious, romantic, and it takes you on a journey through time. Out of Time focuses on a girl living in the twenty first century, who has always dreamed about what it would be like to live during the 1800s--the extravagant gowns, the fairy tale balls, and most of all the romantic gentlemen. Annie Lockwood has always been a helpless romantic wanting to be swept off her feet by her own Prince Charming. Her boyfriend in the twenty first century is the complete opposite of romantic, he cares more about cars than her. One day, as she is daydreaming in front of the old abandoned Mansion that was built during the 1800, she steps into the ballroom. Feeling the velvety scarlet curtains, and gazing at the chandeliers, she goes into a trance. There are people in the ballroom, men dressed in white frilly shirts and long jackets and women dressed in beautiful gowns. "I have drifted back in time," she thought to herself. Will Annie finally find the love and the life that she has been searching for? To find out read Out of Time.
