The Book Jumper
by Mechthild Gläser




Overview -

In this English translation of the hit German young adult novel from Mechthild Gl ser, each book is its own world--with its own dangers. Can a young girl navigate these new worlds and get out alive?

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.

Praise for The Book Jumper:

The lore of the two families and... descriptions of Stormsay and the library are meticulous and moody, creating a gothic atmosphere that serves this star-crossed love story well. ?Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Book Jumper German Edition:

Suspense, action, love and humor: As a reader one wishes one could plunge into the world of books like Amy --Bookmark Magazine

Exciting and imaginative, not just for young readers. --Andrea Wedan, Buchkultur

Mechthild Gl ser is bursting with ideas--this book is a firework. --Tanja Lindauer, Eselsohr
