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.

Praise For Exo

Jumper [is] one of those rare books that can be read as a YA or a book for adults; like Ender's Game or vintage Heinlein.”—Cory Doctorow

Reflex is a fun, fast-paced novel… You don’t need to have read Jumper to enjoy the new novel, but all three of the books mentioned here are highly recommended.”—Charles de Lint,  The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
