it was amazing

Running out of time is about a girl named Jessie, who lives in the 1840's- or so she thinks! She is a believable character going about daily prairie life in Clifton, Indiana. When a deadly incurable disease strikes upon the village her mother revels that it is actually 1996 and that they are living in a tourist village, Jessie must get medicine from the outside world. Jessie is shocked that tourists have been watching her every move on cameras placed around Clifton. She reliazes that everything is not as it seems and she has to hurry before the sickness spreads in Clifton. This book offers a funny and touching insight as to what it would be like to be thrown in a world you only thought was real in your dreams. Jessie navigates cars, surveillance, and busy cities, all of which are new to her and ultimately learns the truth.
