    What would you do if you saw a child with someone you deemed as an unreliable and uncaring mother?

    Victoria is faced with this problem, as while she is at the train station she witnesses a mother verbally abusing her son, and later getting into an argument with a man.

    Usually, most people would see such a situation and shake their heads. With Victoria, not only does she notice the trouble that the boy's life could possibly be in, but she takes action by taking the boy, Willis, from his mother.

    Together they go on an adventure, not toward New York where she had originally planned to go to be with her father, but to Georgia.

    As their journey continues, Victoria and Willis faces numerous obstacles, from threats to calls from those wondering about her actions, to the fact that she just kidnapped a child, even though she had good intentions. The longer they are on the road together, the larger the impact they have on each others lives and the more dangerous their adventure grows. The right actions just turn out to be wrong in other people's eyes.

    Stacy DeKeyser takes us on a journey of someone who sees themselves as weak but whose actions are powerful. Just from the fact that Victoria's family life isn't perfect we understand that she does not want the same fate for Willis. And yet we still must question whether it was the best idea. Two unlikely characters come together and create a bond that is heartwarming and incredible.

    JUMP THE CRACKS is an amazing novel and readers need to jump on the bandwagon and experience an adventure that will make us wonder: "What would we do in this situation?"

    In a genre filled with fantasy and chick-lit, it's refreshing to read a teen novel that tackles a more thought provoking topic. If you witness a small child being abused, would you step in to protect that child? Would you do everything in your power to see that the child stayed out of harm, despite the consequences? This is the problem the main character, Victoria, faces, and she handles it with a mixture of maturity and uncertainty. An excellent read for both young people and adults.
