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 faade. 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.

Synopsis:

Intimidating several of her peers to the point where they felt impelled to leave high school, elitist teen Brinkley Harper is assigned to an unusual counselor who persuades her to adjust her unkind attitude by causing her to experience the lives of the unpopular students she has tormented.

Synopsis:

A bullying, narcissistic high school junior discovers the transforming power of compassion when she literally "walks in someone else's shoes."
