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. She’s teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she’s 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.

A very different kind of book than its predecessors _Jumper_ and _Reflex_. The protagonist is Cent, daughter of David and Millie, and it's the story of how she deals with her ability to jump, in the context of an American High School. (I'm not a fan of the American High School as a setting.) The thr...

The novel is very readable and it is my own fault for going into this without reading the first two but it does say that the story contained within can function quite well as a standalone. However, I think if I had read the series in its entirety, I would perhaps have been familiar with the author’s...
