AMAZON EDITORS' 20 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR PICK 'Heartbreakingly poignant and joyful' Guardian WHAT IF YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE IN THE WRONG 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.

Oona learns that on every birthday she will leap into a different age at random. Still a young woman on the inside, but ever changing on the outside, who will she be next year? Wealthy philanthropist? 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.
