But, at this unique time in life, I’m pretty, and that makes me happy. I didn’t feel that way last June, however, when my nightmare summer at Shadow Grove was about to begin. In many places, early June is considered summer, but that’s not always the way it is in New England. On that particular morning, as I boarded the plane in Boston, it still seemed like springtime, a fragile season of cool, sweet mornings and pale lemon sunlight. It was the last I would see of that sort of weather. When I disembarked in Baton Rouge hours later I felt as if I were walking into a steam bath.

More time passed, and my panic gradually subsided

More time passed, and my panic gradually subsided. Finally, throwing caution to the winds, I turned on the bedside lamp, reopened the diary and resumed reading where I’d left off. The journal’s final entry was longer than any of those that had preceded it, and the writing fairly lurched across the page, as though the person gripping the pen had been too excited to fully control her hand. She smiled, and her teeth showed small and pointed like those of a river bass. I have something that you desire greatly, Madame Berge. I have something for which you have been yearning for quite some time. I find that doubtful, I responded. You have something that I want?

Locked in Time is a 1985 suspense novel by Lois Duncan. The story centers around Nore, a seventeen-year-old girl who moves into a new home with her father and her new stepfamily. Soon after she meets her stepmother, stepbrother, and stepsister for the first time, Nore begins to suspect something is not quite right about her stepfamily. The author states that the novel explores some of the issues surrounding having eternal life.

But I just recently caught the strange, spooky irony that the book titled Locked In Time is itself, locked in time, here on my end table - bookmark marking the place she left off, her reading glasses resting on the cover. Unless I decide to finish the book for her, that is ~ But I’m still trying to adjust to the absence of her presence in my life right now, and maybe always will.

It's also the only one I DIDN'T read as a teen since it was published after I had graduated from the YA section (and yes, there was a YA section at my library back in those olden days. YA DID exist pre-Twilight, you know). I don't know if this one packs less of a punch than her earlier works because it was written later in her career, or if Lois Duncan is best read when one is young and just discovering supernatural suspense fiction.

I loved this book as a kid, so I was excited to find a copy for my daughters. I started reading it and right away, the main character is talking about her dad sending her an email. Whoa! This book was written in 1985! I handed it off to my girls and stopped thinking about it. They both loved it! My oldest said there's an interview with Lois Duncan at the back in which she explains that her publisher asked her to update all of her old books. Apparently, she spent a lot of time figuring out how to destroy cell phones, in order to keep the plots the same. I gave four stars because well, it's not the original, which was fantastic. But 13 and 11 year-olds will still love it and it will make sense in their world. (PS - Amazon still has the original version, if you want to read it.)

Lois Duncan was without a doubt one of my favorites way back in the day. This being the summer of my 40th year, I thought I'd check her out again for nostalgia sake. I loved the story and really did enjoy it the way I did as a kid, which suprised me. What I did not like was that it has been rewritten to include ipods and cell phones which ruined it for me a litlle bit. Too bad Lois felt she had to do this, no one is rewriting to Kill A Mockingbird to include X-box playing instead of tree climbing. Boo on that but otherwise it was really fun to revisit this creepy little book.

Read Locked in Time back in my middle school days. I always love Lois Duncan's books that I have read all of them. I love the supernatural twists she adds to her books. Even though her rewrite books to bring technology and such up to date in her books are fine. I am slightly biased to her original copies.

It's been 10 years since I last read this and every bit as captivating as the first time. It was like reading the book for the first time because I didn't remember much from the first time reading it. Since I read this book I have made it a point to read other Lois Duncan books. I am never disappointed!

I would have to say that there is really nothing wrong with this book, except that there's nothing really right about it.
Fans of Lois Duncan will like this book as much as any of her other books, but no more... That's all it is, your typical Lois Duncan book.
Like my favorite book of hers, Don't look Behind You, the story is told in the first person, which makes it more personal, but also slows it down. One of Duncan's strength has always been the number of characters she develops in her books. Books like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Killing Mr. Griffin were better because they had a lot of characters, so something was always happening to somebody.
Locked in Time is a sort of darker version of Tuck Everlasting showing the scary and depressing side of what it would be like to live forever. The book has some scary parts, and is fairly readable, but it never hits any new heights for Duncan, and the climax is not particularly exciting (nothing new for Duncan, since the endings of most of her books are fairly abrupt.)
The end of Locked in Time is alright, but it seems kind of forced and it doesn't really resolve any of the issues put forward in the book.

This writer has so many good works, I really enjoy the picture this author paints, This version has been updated from the original. I have read both. Both are a great read.

Very, very helpful when there was a slight issue. Also came very quickly.
Whatever age, well written and enjoyable. I never read her novels when I was the proper age, so I'm happy to have the opportunity to do so now.
