Excellent YA novel that shares many plot points with The Village. Running Out of Time was written FIRST and is BETTER and has a satisfying ending. Haddix is an excellent story-teller with a love of history. This novel isn't science fiction, exactly; but it IS ethics and medicine and treatment - and choice *imposed.* In this day and age, it's great to read a book with a *point.*

If I could give it more than 5 Stars, I would. It's that good!

I adore the idea of this book! Jessie has grown up in the tiny town of Clifton in the 1800s, thinking that it is the real world. There are a few odd things she has noticed, but it is her home and seems real to her. Then kids in the village start getting sick. They need more help than 1800s medicine can offer, so her mother sneaks Jessie out of Clifton and into the real, modern-day world of 1996. Jessie is the only one who can go get the desperately needed help for the sick kids. But first she has to learn a huge number of things in order to get by in the modern world. The book describes how Jessie learns about them as she searches for help.

In the end, there are some plot holes that are big enough to drive a truck through, but I found I loved this book anyway. Jessie is a wonderful heroine, and the idea of this book is wonderfully original.

My six year old son enjoyed having this book read to him.

I do want to post a warning that the $2.99 edition of this book, which I bought as a gift for my sister, has a yellow circle on the front cover, with black lettering saying, "Adventurous Price! Only $2.99. ($4.50 CAN)" Ick! The yellow circle is about an inch in diameter, with an orange and black border around it. Amazon didn't have a picture of the cover for this edition of the book. I'm embarrassed to give this edition as a gift. I can't remove the price. I'm thinking maybe I'll put stickers over it. Sigh....

Jessie and her family live in a village in Clifton Indiana, 1840, and diphtheria has started to spread. The kids are starting to die. They need medicine and need it soon. But how will they get it? They're in the middle of nowhere.

No, it turns out they are not. Jessie finds out from her mother that the year is really 1996 and that the village is nothing but a tourist site, a reconstructed village, where people can watch what life was like in the 19th century.

But things have gone wrong and Jessie has to escape and tell somebody that the people in the village need help. Because the company running the site have stopped giving them drugs and her mother thinks the outside world may be in worse shape than when she left it. It could be the company running the site WANTS the kids to get sick.

Can Jessie escape the park, find somebody to help her and save the kids? Or will she be stopped? Will she be killed? The novel seems to be the idea, the tiny seed, behind the movie The Village but the plot of the novel seems a tad weak. Of course, it is for Ages 8 to 12 but still I feel it could have been a tad more dark and realistic.

What a great book! Jessie lives in a small village in Indiana in what she believes to be the 1830s. When the children in the village become ill with diptheria, Jessie's mom sends her on a emergency errand into the "real world" to get help and medicine for the children. The major problem is that, in the "real world" it is 1996. Jessie is stunned to realize that the town of Clifton is a tourist attraction for people that want to see folks living in olden times. The adults in the town chose to "go back to earth" and live in the old ways but all the children genuinely believe it is the 1830s. Jessie must grapple with the reality of modern life alone while trying to find help for her family and friends. The book was very original and interesting although the ending was a little too neat and tidy given the reality of what Jessie was trying to accomplish.

While I am an adult, this book was recommended as a fun and easy summer read. It lived up to its expectations. The reading level is definitely intended for a young adult audience, but it was entertaining and a quick read even for adults. The story was creative and required a lot of imagination. At several points I found myself getting anxious and excited for the main character Jessie in the book. It also has a complete ending, which many books lack recently. I prefer closure in a story!

Reread this again because I really loved this book when I was a child. However, reading it as an adult now kind of ruined the magic. The premise of the story is still entertaining; sort like Westworld for kids. The writing however, is really stunted and I find Jessie REALLY annoying. I know she discovers a lot of new things and she's right to ask lots of questions, but man, she was so annoying.

Started reading this book in elementary school but for some reason never finished. Read it all yesterday night - planned to pause for sleep but unexpected plot twists made me keep going! Very good!

There was some issue where the author was accused of plagiarism due to basic similarities with the movie ‘The Village,’ released the year before, I believe. Basic premise is the same, but plot details, reasons and issues surrounding the villages, and so much more are VASTLY different (and I find this book to be superior!).
Lily,a middle-grader,recommended this to me--and I was not disappointed. Couldn't put it down. The author expertly develops a story about Jessie's adventure to leave her 1840 village (actually a guarded scientific-study community in 1996) to find medicine for a diptheria epidemic. The reader experiences Jessie's confusion and amazement at telephones, cars, busses, etc. I'm going to check out Margaret Haddix's other books, expecting to be as thoroughly enchanted.
