Thirteen year-old Jesse Keyser is your average teenage girl. She lives in 1840 in a small village in the dense forest of Indiana, but her life suddenly changes when she discovers a secret that will change her life. Young Jesse is told a secret that will change her life. Secretly, her mother tells her it is truly 1996 and that this young girl must get help. Her village is suffering when diphtheria strikes. As she leaves the village, she is fascinated and a little scared by the outside world. She uses the number her mother gave her to call for help. The man she meets is going to save the village, or does he have other plans? What is Jesse going to do now? In this exciting read, you will follow a young girl through her transition from her everyday life to the real world outside. Once you pick up this book, you will never be able to put it down. I could never put it down, it was so consuming. This book shows that anyone can do anything. I would say that this book is easiest to read for people ages ten and sixteen. Plus, anyone could enjoy this easy and exciting read. If you like to read adventurous books, this is the one for you.

Running Out of Time is a creative book about a young teenage girl who escapes her culture into the outside world. This book is exciting, different, unique, and possibly for some readers it may be addictive. Although this book is enjoyed by many, it could us a few modiffcations in my opinion. The words are not descriptive enough and sometimes you wish that they would just cut to the point. Besides these few minor problems, the book was well thought out and fairly interesting.

Jessie lives in a small town in what she thinks is in the 1800's, where many children are starting to die. Her mother notices this, and decides to let Jessie in on a little secret: it's the late 1900's, and she is living in what's a recreation for tourists. Her mother sends her out into reality to fetch a doctor. She gets dressed in modern day clothes and sends her off with some cash. Along the way, Jessie discovers what happens every day in the real world, and meets a few little"friends" while she's at it.....

So what happens next? Does Jessie get the doctor back in time to save her people? Or is this tourist attraction also the graveyard of innocent farmers and families? Find out in Running Out of Time!
