The Book Jumper by Mechthild Gläser


Book Summary:

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.

My Review:

The book starts off with Amy and her mom leaving the mainlands and heading back home. Amy never knew her mom’s pass on why she left to begin with but she will find out sooner or later. Amy and her mom wanted and escape from their problems back staying on the island with Amy’s grandma she hardly knows. One day Amy discovers she is in a long line of book jumpers. Two feuding clans comes together to book jump and protect the stories inside. Things are not what the they seem on the island, a book character dies, and someone been stealing story ideas. Everyone seems to be a suspect even Amy herself, who powers seems different the other and can jump without the portal anytime she wants. The adults don’t seem to care what’s happening in the books. So it’s up to Amy and the only other person who believes her Will to save the stories and restore order. Amy learns some secrets of her past and who her real father is and why her powers seems so different. Will Amy and Will be enough to catch the thief in time? Well you might have to book jump yourself to find out. So Happy Reading!

  1. I’m looking forward to this! Any book with this type of power is a book I want to at least take a look at.

    Have you ever read the Inkheart series? It has some similarities to this book, I think, and I’d recommend it if you enjoyed The Book Jumper.
