It's 1840 and in the small village of Clifton the children are dying from an outbreak of diphtheria, and there is no medicine to save them. Their deaths seem inevitable until Jessie's mother admits that she knows how to cure them. The problem is that it isn't as simple as using a little medicine. Clifton's future hangs in the balance and the only way to cure the children is to tell Jessie the truth: Clifton is an experiment, and it is really the year 1996.
Running Out of Time is a complex and utterly gripping novel which examines the effects of a human experiment that begins to go horribly wrong. Jessie is sent out into the real world to find medicine, leaving her loved ones behind to face a treacherous journey. As she treads softly through the horrors of this brave, new world, she has to come to terms with the fact that her whole life so far has been part of a strange experiment while realising that there are dangerous people out there who will do anything to stop her telling the truth.
This is a clever book, which uses attention-grabbing, fast-paced writing as a way of questioning the world we live in, and will capture the imagination of any curious reader with a passion for cracking story-telling. (Ages 10 and over)--Susan Harrison -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

today I find it wonderful to find a book that has
a unique plot that twists like a vine.
13 year old Jessie lives in a small Indiana
town in 1840, or so she thinks. When a
diphtheria epidemic breaks out among the
children she suddenly finds out the truth,
it's 1996. For years her family has been
living in a "pretend" world where it's still the
1800's. Jessie suddenly finds herself lost in
an entirely different century where there is a
cure for diphtheria. She must find that cure
and alert the world of the injustice that is
going on where she comes from. This is a
wonderful book that will keep you captivated from
beginning to end!
They say that the people that write best are those people that write about what they know and Margaret Peterson Haddix actually knew of a tourist place similar to where our story starts. Yet the strength in Haddix's story is not as much the intriguing plot as it is her description of people and things. She makes you wonder what you would do.
I knew or thought I pretty much knew the story before reading the book as I saw the movie "The Village" (2004). However the movie was readjusted to match M. Night Shyamalan's standard formula including the standard ending twist. The book was more complex and did not need the minute twist.

Now imagine this: We're moving along, thinking it's the year 2000 when a terrible disease spreads through our city. Eventually we learn that the year is really 2150 and people have been paying money to watch our EVERY move since we were born. Get the idea? Read this book!
