Published by Feiwel & Friends
Release Date: January 3, 2017
Rating: 4 Stars
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 the cost.

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of The Book Jumper for an honest review.
The Book Jumper is a great fantasy adventure. I loved that the story built and didn’t just rush into her magical abilities. This is book is fun, charming with a unique story line that will have you quickly flipping the pages.
Amy is a girl running away with her mom from their life and they decide to go and stay with her Grandmother. Amy has never met her Grandmother and only knows that she lives a different life then the one she has been accustomed to. She expects her to read while she stays with her.
Amy discovers she has an amazing ability not just to read a story and enjoy their journey through the written words but actually jump into the story. She is a book jumper. Amy jumps into many stories: Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, The Jungle Book, Oliver Twist, Jane Eyre, and The Wizard of Oz, and more.
The book I would love to jump into the most would be The Wizard of Oz. I can imagine the many adventures I would have, and friends I would make along the way. There would be many dangers on my adventure, but I think the magical sites would out weigh that. Seeing emerald city is just one example.
Amy soon meets Will and he is too a book jumper. He is determined to help her figure out why someone would want to steal from the books Amy has been visiting. The relationship between Amy and Will is a bit instalove which I did not like at first but it does grow on me towards the end. I would say this book is a great, fun read and I would love to see a sequel, even though I know it is a standalone at this point. I am giving The Book Jumper 4 out of 5 stars.
The Wizard of Oz is a book I have always wanted to Jump Into!
