Description

Award-winning author, Steven Gould, returns to the world of his classic novel Jumper in Exo, the sequel to Impulse, blending the drama of high school with world shattering consequences.

Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be—sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it's hard to keep a secret like that. And there are people, dangerous people, who work for governments and have guns, who want to make you do just this one thing for them. And when you're a teenage girl things get even more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.

But Cent isn't easily daunted, and neither are Davy and Millie, her parents. She's going to make some changes in the world.

      • source: News-Journal, Daytona Beach
      • content: "[Gould's] gift is in writing about extraordinary things in a very ordinary way with humor and matter-of-factness and it's never been on display so much as here.... While Exo is still very much Gould's style, this time I also got a whiff of the space-station worldbuilding of Allen M. Steele and John Verley, and a strong flavor of the old Heinlein juveniles when Robert A. Heinlein wrote engineers as heroes and orbital mechanics as something integral to the plot. Since all three are favorite authors of mine, this is a Good Thing. Gould manages the trick of including just enough science to make Exo fascinating and barely plausible without getting so far into technobabble that I felt lost.... I read it in two big gulps, pulled along by the voices of the characters and the magnitude of what they were attempting, and I closed it wanting to know what would happen next in a very different world. That's a hint, Mr. Gould."

        Returning to the world of his popular novel Jumper (last seen in 2013's Impulse), Gould again bridges teen and adult audiences for the story of Cent, who comes from a family of teleporters being sought by the government.

        September 1, 2014
        Gould's Jumper (1992) launched a series of novels about a family whose members have the rare ability to teleport themselves from one place to another. Here, Cent, the teenage daughter of the original novel's lead character, is having a hard time bearing up under the pressure of keeping her gift a secret, especially since there are a lot of people (including the mysterious Daarkon Group, a carryover from previous books) who would do pretty much anything to exploit it. She wants to be a normal teenager with the normal problems, but she's too smart to imagine she can ever lead a regular life. The question is, What is she prepared to risk in order to live the kind of life her special gift opens up for her? Like its predecessors, the novel straddles the line between YA and adult fiction; its lead character is a teen, but the story has many adult-themed elements, and its writing seems geared more toward older readers. Those unfamiliar with the earlier books might feel a bit lost, but fans of the series should give it this one an enthusiastic response.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
