THE BOOK JUMPER
Releases January 2017 from Feiwel & Friends
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.
I don't think there's an avid reader out there whose greatest fantasy isn't to be able to literally jump into the world of their favorite books (OH HI BONES AND BARRONS! AND CURRAN!), so there's no way this book wouldn't be on my must-have list. Also, Scotland. Anything set in Scotland or Ireland just makes me happy, so I'm looking forward to living vicariously through Amy as she journeys to Scotland and jumps her way from one piece of fiction to the next.
