Do you have a stubborn sense that nothing in this world is as it seems? Have you wondered why no one else seems to notice? Teen novelist Abigail Dobbs invites you to break the spell you were born into and experience another dimension, a space where time drops its cloak of linear fashion and dreams are willed into reality, a reality that is altogether Out of Time.
Everything was going wrong for Keira Sun, a fourteen-year-old girl from Upstate New York. She was failing math. Her friends were excluding her. Her dad just married a woman less than half his age. And her mom had no interest in her. Keira felt like she must have belonged somewhere else.
It turns out she was right.
One morning, Keira found herself pulled into a city called Lana Ilu, where everyone is born with the ability to time travel. The different parts of the city weren’t just neighborhoods, they were different eras. Soon after Keira arrived, the authorities learned that her era was 200,000 years into the future. This terrified the city. Why? Because Keira, and only Keira, shared this era with Lana Ilu’s most feared resident.
