Publisher Comments:

Steven Gould returns to the world of his classic novel Jumper in Impulse.

Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents arms. Shes teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but shes never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger.

Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.

Review:

"Familiarity with Gould's Jumper and Reflex (or, at minimum, the film of Jumper) is recommended before starting this initially confusing but intriguing story. Millicent 'Cent' Ross is born in secrecy and raised in relative seclusion by her overprotective parents, Millie and Davy. The isolation isn't without reason: government forces and others are looking for the Ross family. Millie and Davy have the ability to teleport, or 'jump,' from location to location. Cent has only jumped with her parents, never on her own, until a freak accident unleashes her dormant power and opens up a whole new world. She demands release from her isolation, but controlling her power is as daunting as navigating high school, what with boys, sports, and a particularly loathsome bully. Fans of the series will enjoy meeting the next generation, but other readers may just feel lost." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
