Cooney has written not only a love story, a time-travel fantasy, and a murder mystery, but also a provocative and powerful examination of women, marriage and relationships in two centuries. -School Library Journal. The Face on the Milk Carton

Caroline B. Cooney is the author of over 90 young adult novels including the thriller-romance. In middle school, she had a group of friends to hang out with.

What i absolutely loved was Caroline B COoney's astute humour, making a joke out of everything without even sounding like trying to crack a pun. However, i don't understand why they call it a trilogy when there are three sequels to Both Sides of Time? But anyway, its such a lovely book you wouldn;t want to close the book once you open it.

Annie Lockwood travels back in time for a third time in this novel. On this occasion, to save her true love, Strat Stratton from a lunatic asylum where he's been held for three years almost since her departure in Both Sides of Time.

At Yale, he wrote essays about time travel embellished with anecdotes of all the changes the world would experience in the future. Stories Annie had told him about like the death of all the American Elm trees. His rival, Walker Walkley, used these essays to convince Mr. Stratton senior that Strat was insane and needed "special care" while he, Walk, would connive to steal both Strat's finacee Harriet's money as well as worming his way into the Stratton fortune through Strat's younger sister, Devonny. (If you didn't like Walker Walkley in the previous novel, don't waste your time reading this book because he's the most central character in this episode.)

Where Both Sides of Time was visually beautiful, Out of Time is not. The reader spends most of his time reading about the abuse of inmates in the asylum where Strat is confined or up at Cold Bath, a tubucular cure cottage where Strat's fiancee, Harriet Ranleigh is incarcerated with tuberculosis. And, the peripheral characters who co-inhabit both places.

With difficulty, and an assist from Devonny Stratton who appears only very briefly in this book, Annie pulls off a daring rescue of Strat from the asylum using the wiles of the Victorian woman she's pretending to be. But, warned of her return to 1898, and her interfering intentions regarding Strat, it isn't long before Walker Walkley is in hot pursuit.

There's little romance in this book. Upon his release from the asylum, Strat insists they visit Harriet in the cure cottage. Reunited there, Harriet happily dies in Strat's arms and he inherits her fortune which she legally changed before Walker Walkley could intervene.

Spoiler alert :

Once his financial future is secured, Strat informs Annie of his decision to leave his family, father, sister and even his mother. He plans to go to Egypt and become an archeologist of sorts. He tells Annie to return to her own time; he has someone else to take to Egypt with him. He doesn't tell Annie who, but he takes Douglass, a mentally impaired man with whom he shared a room at the lunatic asylum, and Katie, a young woman housed in the same asylum because her face was marred by cleft lip and cleft palate.

Walker does catch up with Annie and threatens her with a lifetime of incarceration in the very asylum from which she'd just sprung Strat, but voila, she time travels away just in time.

So ends a choppy, poorly told story sadly lacking all of the charm that made the first so compelling. Save your "time". Pass this one up.

Out of Time
by Caroline B. Cooney
This is the second book of her trilogy, and again I loved it. I read it through in one night!
At the end of book one, when Annie leaves Strat's 1880 world to return to her own a century later, she has no idea that he will be charged with insanity because of openly discussing Annie's time-traveling ability. Now, when she returns, she is the only one who has even a slim chance of rescuing him from the asylum where he is being confined.

One thing I like about both books (and it seemed to come through even stronger in book II) was the honor and integrity of the hero. Strat is a man who pays his debts of honor--to Katie, the girl in the mental asylum (there only because she was born with a cleft palate) who befriends him. To Harriet, who loves him and needs him more than Annie, the woman he loves. And he loves Annie so much, in fact, that he finds "strength to pull away, and kiss no more..." For him, this is "the definition of love: not touching a woman until marriage." Annie loves Strat for his goodness, even when it means she must suffer because of it.

Cooney continues to compare and contrast the 1880s with the 1980s. Both centuries have their benefits and their downsides. One flaw in Annie's century would sure makes life easier when it comes to making the hard decisions she and Strat have to make. Because in the 1980s, Annie says, "people let you use any excuse. . . .You never had to be responsible for what you did, because it could always be somebody else's fault."
Out of Time has great messages, great characters, and great story.

I purchased this book and have given it my fair review.

I didn�t really like this book; it started out slow and never really sped up. The book was not very long but it could have been much shorter. I think that the book was dragged out making it longer than what it needed to be. Also, it was confussing at the beginning because it kept switching to different character�s point of view during the chapters. I think that the book could have been just as good if it stuck with only one or two characters and still be good. Instead the author portrayed almost every character�s point of view. I thought it made it con fussing but someone else may like it.
This book is about a fourteen year old girl named Anna Sophia Lockwood who can go through time. She had visited time before and fell in love with a boy named Strat who belongs to a rich family. When she comes to visit again she finds out that Strat�s dad had put Strat into an asylum because he talked to other people about Anna going through time. Even thought the whole family knew it was true they would not admit it to the public that way the public didn�t think that the whole family was crazy. Devony was Strat�s sister and she was very mad at Anna because she screwed up their perfect life. Devonny tells Anna that it was all Anna�s fault and tells Anna to rescue Strat from the asylum because Devvony for her dad is controlling what she can and can not do.
Anna now has to fit in with another century and avoid the dangers of not having a male escort. [Many women in those days were thought to be an outcast of a family if they don�t have escorts.] Anna has to overcome many hardships in order to survive the wilderness on her own; also she has to look out for Devvony�s fiancé who will stop at nothing in order to get Devvony�s family fortune.
