I read this as a teenager. In fact I read all the Louis Duncan books I could get my hands on. This was one of the best. I'm so glad I've found it again on here! A fab book! I thoroughly recommend it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Locked in time is about a teenage girl called Nore, whose father has just remarried after her mother's death. Her new step-mother, Lis is very beautiful, and has 2 children, Gabe and Josie. After a while Nore begins to think something is going on after she hears whispered conversations between Lis and her children. Nore is attracted to Gabe, but realises that something is wrong after he 'accidently' threw her off the boat when they went fishing. Towards the end, Nore finds the key to the hut where Lis keeps all her private possessions and Nore begins to read Lis' diary which explains everything. I would recommend this book to anyone 12-18 years old. This is a fascinating book, one of the author's best yet.

Locked In Time 31 Jan. 2001
By Kristen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
Can you imagine never growing older? Being stuck at the age you are right now for all eternity? If you were Lisette, Gabe or Josie in the novel "Locked In Time", by Lois Duncan, you'd know what it feels like to be the same age for over 100 years. Decades pass, new invention develop, those around you die, but you keep living on... When Nore Robbins goes to live with her dad, who recently remarried Lisette, she begins to sense something about her step-mother and her two kids. Through overhearing mysterious comments and piecing clues together, Nore begins to realize that her new step-family, by some strange occurence, never ages and never will because they are locked in time. The best part about this book is that it has it all (except comedy)... drama, murder, romance, mystery, suspense, science fiction and plenty of real life aspects. Having been written in first person main character, the book gives the reader an inside view on the story. You're right there with Nore as she's hearing the odd fragment of inforamtion and it's almost as if you are helping her piece clues together. The major lesson/moral that was clearest to me from "Locked In Time" was that some secrets just aren't meant to be kept behind closed doors forever. They're bound to be let out in the open sometime, especially if you try to hard to conceal them. Although the book isn't adult-themed, the plot and subtle clues about the ending throughout the book would make it difficult for anyone under 11 to understand and enjoy.

By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel has you hooked from the first chapter, it is very interesting and has great suspense!

It is about a girl named Nore. After her mother dies, Nore goes to live with her father and his new family at a mysterious place. Nore gets twisted into a scary world of trouble as she learns new things that will help her solve the mystery of her new family and their home.

It has very interesting scenes that will make you stay up late to find out what happens next, it's a wonderful book.

Will Nore save her dad? 10 Feb. 2006
By Vtown Tigers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book I read was Locked in time by Lois Duncan. This book was about a girl named Nore and she is visiting her dad, her new step mom, brother, and sister for the whole summer. When she begins her visit there, she loves it and she loves her new family. She begins to have weird dreams about her dead mother telling her to get herself and her father out of there immediately. She ignores them and soon wishes she hadn't. Soon her new family begins to act very strange and she is beginning to feel weird around them. Nore soon discovers why her stepfamily is acting so strange. She soon decides that she does need to get her father out of there.

I really liked this book because it was both an adventure and mystery book in one. What I didn't like was how Nore's father didn't listen to her. That mad me angry that he didn't believe his own daughter.

I would recommend this book to mysteries lovers. Also, to a person who wants a book to make them keep reading. This book reminded me of the book Tuck Everlasting because they were also locked in time.

This Is My Favorite... 29 May 2000
By "flamingtree" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first started reading Lois Duncan as teen back in the late eighties and early nineties. I read every one I could get my hands on,whether it be at the library or bookstore.
Locked In Time,however,is my favorite. As a teen I read this book at least six or seven times,yes I liked it that much.
A couple of weeks ago,while searching for some books to buy for my teenage sister-in-law,I came across Locked In Time and decided to get it. The package arrived and there it was calling my name. So,I took it out and read it again. The storytelling and the magic it weaves is still fantastic,even now after all of these years.
I kept that copy,bought my sister-in-law another,and put mine right where it belongs,on my bookshelf next to the Mary Higgins Clark and Sue Grafton novels and all of my other "adult" novels. It's there,ready to be enjoyed again. As i said,It's THAT good.

This book was amzing! 21 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book is awesome, i believe that this book was written very welland with a lot of imagination. The author of this book was really into a magical mystireous , eerie kind of world ans as soon as you meet the characters you can't stop yourself from being totally absobred into this world, feeling youreself like one of the characters. This book includs amazing stories that one could not imagine in real life, it gives you a new prespective of how aging and dieing is also part of life. You can never fully live a life without growing up. Being stuck in one year can never be that wonderufl. This book has it all, the mystery the scare factor, the humor , evrey thing. If you are going to read a book i suggest that yuo read this one.
