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...
