Overview


At seventeen, Dru gets involved with the latest high school stunt-leaping between deadly cliffs into the ocean far below. Things get out of hand as manipulative relationships and resulting jealousies cause more students to risk their lives. “It’s Bunting’s acknowledgment of the allure of danger and the power that comes from facing it, as well as her on-target depiction of how easy it is to lose perspective when you fall in love, that makes her novel more than just a good, fast read.”--Booklist

When teenagers in a California coastal community challenge each other to "jump the Nail"--leap from dangerous cliffs into the ocean--group pressure and manipulative relationships quickly drive the game out of control.

    Uncomfortable

    It was a good beginning, but I started to get uncomfortable that there was peer pressure. It gave me a feel of how it felt to be in elisa's, and dur's position. I don't know how to explain it, but it put me in an awkard position.

    The Book Was Great!

    I got the book at of the library and I couldn't put it down. It was a very different book. There is a girl named Dru and her best friend, Elisa will do anything for her boyfriend, Scooter even if it means jumping of a 90ft jumping spot called the nail. The ocean under it is said to be bottomless. No one has jumped it for awhile not since the accident.... Will Elisa jump? Will she servive? You need to read the book!

    A reviewer

    This book was so exciting. I brought it home one day and couldn't put it down. It is from the point of view of a girl named Dru. She lives in La Paloma, California and has a best friend, Elisa, who will do anything for her new found 'soul mate.' Her 'soul mate' Scooter wants to jump the nail, which is a 90ft cliff which to these high school grads, jumping off is the romantic thing to do. Now, will Elisa jump? If she does, will she get hurt? Does any one die? What about some crazy person going around thinking a dead, drowned girl is talking? Well inorder to find out you'll have to read and see.

    Weird Book!

    This book started off ok, but the plot started to get a little weird. Peer pressure was a big problem in the book, and it made one of the characters go a little crazy. I don't like reading about kids my age having problems in school.

    Do not read

    This book was a flop. We were assigned to read it in school and I wish we hadn't. The plot revolves around a girls best friend who has a serious chemical inbalance in her brain and does not function correctly. do not read this book.

    Do not read!

    We were assigned this book in 7th grade and I was forced to read it until the end, otherwise I would have stopped when the girl started going crazy. I would strongly recommend anyone considering reading this book steer away. Unless you enjoy reading about a teen-age girl going mentally insane and no one even tries to help them. Plot was well written but ridiculous main direction. Most people in my class had the same reaction. Terrible ending.

    'Jump of a lifetime'

    In Eve Bunting's, 'Jumping The Nail', teenagers in La Paloma, California, are taking the jump of a lifetime off the 90-foot tall 'nail'. In the story Dru, a student at La Paloma High School is about to graduate and head off for college at Northwestern University. Her boyfriend, Mike, is also going to be graduating, but staying closer to home. The school year is progressing like any other year until the first people jump the 'nail', which then leads to others jumping. Scooter Navarro and his girlfriend Elisa (Dru¿s best friend) are the first couple to jump the death defying 'nail'. After making the jump safely Dru realizes that her friend Elisa is not acting like herself. Elisa confides to Dru that she saw a drowned girl at the bottom of the ocean during her jump. Elisa is acting weird and thinks the drowned girl is going to come and get her. Meanwhile there is a rivalry going on between two brothers and a boy named Hopi, over a girl named Diane. To prove to Diane that they are 'real men', the two brothers decide to jump the 'nail'. To make things even more exciting they decide to make the jump at night with all their friends watching. The two brothers are about to jump and then something happens that nobody could have expected. I liked this book because it was full of suspense and it kept me interested until the very last page. One of the things I especially liked about this story is that it dealt with one of the worst kinds of peer pressure. I would highly recommend this book. The people that would enjoy this book the most are young teens, both male and female.
