Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents' arms. She's teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she's never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger. Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.

This novel in the series is very much toned down. Most of it is high school drama related, but the style is just as great. Definitely helped having read the other books in the series. There's a lot of references. Great read, just a little toned down....
Liked the story just slower, a lot slower than the first. The new voice threw me off and at first I was kind of ticked because I liked the male reader, but the new one was good too.
Okay, I can buy the homeschooled kid with an amazing educational background. I can even go along with the snowboarding. BUT this book is so full of unbelievably perfect, giving, intelligent, and well rounded people that I started laughing at every new revelation. The straight A male athletic team captain secretly loves an English novelist from the 1800's. Really!?
Say something about yourself!
No, this book did nothing to move the main plot of the series forward at all. It was childish and read more like a "men suck and women rule" pamphlet. I have a hard time believing it was written by the same guy who wrote the first 2 books in the series.
This might be a good book for those interested in stories of girls in high school. However, for anyone looking for Part 3 of the series, it was a huge disappointment. It just doesn't belong with the other 2 books.
I listen to approximately 25 hours per week and have downloaded over 400 books on Audible. Mostly I like mysteries, fantasy and scifi.
The movie version of Jumper missed the mark so someone needs to make a new TV series based more on the book series. This series is great but takes too long for new books to be released.
Still up near the top as the books were, but
Cent because with her being young she is more daring which translate to new things with the Jumping ability.
Have not listened to anything else by Emily, but she did a good job. I'd be willing to look into listening to other books she has narrated.
No. Maybe just chuckle a bit.
It was a good book, but because of the main character it did deal with teenage issues. I'm not a big fan of going through all the high school drama but for the character it was necessary and understandable. The book is well written, it is entertaining, and it is worth another listen, just not immediately after finishing it the first time.

The 15 year old teen girl is one of the most likeable, and reasonable teen characters I've ever met in fiction. Almost real, in many ways, and hey, if she's a little too good to be true, remember it's a fantasy. However, the book does deal with the physics of the scifi/fantasy elements quite well, making it more scientific than most "science fiction". This is the best I've read in several years, and the narration does the best possible thing: It stays in the background, at least appearing the story carry you along, without distractions, but with all the subtle nuances that a gifted reader can add to the overall experience

Childish, political correct, and boring.
Make the characters more realistic
It had the same kidnap rescue thing as the first two books, I didn't hate it, just disappointed as I liked the first two books, and this one wasn't as good.
The first book in this series was great. The second not so much. Therefore I only got this one as part of a 2 for 1 deal. It was as good as the first. I could hardly wait to get to the end..
