Nore travels to Louisana to meet her new step family for the first time-Lisette her stunning step mother& Lisettes two children from a previous marriage-the handsome Gabe& the troubled teenage Girl Jo. Soon after arriving Nore feels something just isn't right with this family-isn't Lisette just too beautiful for words?& why do they all talk about the past as if it was just yesterday?
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.
