Kids say (1):

JUMPER is a clever, captivating, suspenseful science fiction adventure with a troubled yet resourceful young protagonist. Author Steven Gould treats his outlandish premise with as much realism as possible, examining the physical and emotional consequences that an ability like teleportation might bring. The narrative zigzags in unexpected directions, but the complexity of the characters keeps the story grounded and compelling.
