The Book Jumper
In this English translation of the hit German young adult novel from Mechthild Gläser, each book is its own world—with its own dangers. Can a young girl navigate these new worlds and get out alive?
Amy Lennox doesn't know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother's childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay. Amy's grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House—but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy's new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts—at whatever cost.
A thrilling YA adventure about a fifteen year old girl with an unexpected ability - she can jump inside books and experience their stories first hand.
