Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

High school junior Brinkley Harper is beautiful, wealthy, admired, and powerful--until the day she wakes up in the body of a classmate she wouldn’t be caught dead hanging out with.

 

Goth girl Miranda is everything Brinkley isn’t: she won't leave the house in anything but black, her family life is in tatters, she’s practically invisible at school, and she’s hiding a dark secret. As Brinkley experiences Miranda’s life from the inside out, she’s forced to consider the world from a very different point-of-view. But this won’t be Brinkley's last “jump,” and each time she lives a day in another classmate’s body, Brinkley not only begins to feel empathy for others, she also begins to glimpse the fears, vulnerabilities, and disappointments behind her own perfect façade. By experiencing the world as somebody else, Brinkley may finally learn to understand herself.

 

A contemporary fantasy featuring a gutsy heroine and fast-paced action, Jump explores the transformation of a girl who never knew she needed one.

Review:

"Callous and ruthless Brinkley Harper has almost everything a girl could want: rich parents, beauty, popularity, and a boyfriend who makes 'nice arm candy.' But her mean-girl antics have caused four girls to transfer schools, and Brinkley is forced to get therapy or be expelled; she doesn't count on being assigned a therapist who gives Brinkley a supernatural dose of her own medicine. In a whimsical tale of transformation, Rue (Brand New Emily) explores what happens when Brink­ley's spirit enters the bodies of some less pampered peers, like a goth with an abusive stepfather, or a mercilessly teased overweight girl, or a Korean exchange student. It doesn't take long for Brinkley to understand the error of her ways, and Rue tends to hit readers over the head ('Brinkley had never before realized that she attached her allure to something beyond her long thin legs, tiny waist, and pretty face.... It was like she'd been fed a steady diet of lies since she was old enough to read princess stories') as Brink­ley's inevitable and too tidy change of heart unfolds. Ages 12 — up. (Sept.)"
