Contemporary novel in the voice of a big hearted but uneducated narrator who faces difficult and dangerous challenges armed only with duct tape and creativity. Might remind some readers of a modern Huck Finn. Appeals to both young readers and old. From the author of There Are No Electrons.

Jumper and theBones based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Jumper and the Bones is a very interesting book. It doesn’t involve flashbacks and it doesn’t really detail anything. This doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good book. Jumper and the Bones is about a man, named Jumper, who lives in his apartment alone. He lives a life of free will, until the day three gang members tried to mug him. When he tried to talk some sense into the gang members, the members decided they have had enough of Jumper. Now he was on edge. While trying to survive his lifestyle and trying to shut down The Bones at the same time, he’s faced with many choices that could very well change the way he thinks about life itself. Well, this book has very good points. First off, the author made this book very interesting. This book is very hard to put down mainly because Jumper’s life has many weird twists and turns. Also, this book describes Jumper’s life in detail. The book describes his daily life, such as what he does for the day, what he shopped for, and what he does in searching for the Bones. Some negative points of the book were the ending and the misspelling of some words. The ending is just a very big point and it just ends. If you love cliffhangers, then this is your book. I personally hate cliffhangers. When I say a misspelling of a few words, I mean a few words. It’s not that much to get upset about, but you will notice them. In conclusion, Jumper and the Bones is an okay book and I would definitely recommend it to all of you. This book has good and bad points just like any other book, but the good points sort of outweigh the bad ones. If you’re looking for a book that has everyday life, a mystery, and some action, you should probably get this book.
