Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deciding he has finally had enough abuse from his drunken father and is now determined to get away — any way he can — Davy discovers that he has the ability to teleport anywhere he wants. So he "jumps" to New York City. But next he finds himself desperately short on cash, so he "jumps" into a bank vault. While living the high life in the Big City and testing the limits of his power, Davey makes another startling discovery — the mother whom he thought had abandoned him.

But a new tragedy and other events plunge Davy into a dangerous and mysterious world of terrorists and government espionage. This time there may be no safe place for "the Jumper."

"Gould's warm, delightful, and compulsively readable novel displays assured storytelling skill." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Gould combines fantastical elements with characters who experience realistic emotions and tragedies, making the story suspenseful and adventurous yet believable." Children's Literature

Review:

"An exceptionally well-organized debut, with thoughtful ideas, a controlled plot, and characters — particularly the young protagonist — portrayed with insight and compassion." Kirkus Reviews
