Award-winning author Rita Williams-Garcia intertwines the lives of three very different teens in this fast-paced, gritty narrative about choices and the impact that even the most seemingly insignificant ones can have. Weaving in and out of the girls' perspectives, readers will find themselves with three different voices and sides to one story, reminiscent of Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass and How It All Went Down.

Trina: "Hey," I say, though I don't really know them. It's okay if they don't speak. I know how it is. They can't all be Trina.



Dominique: Some stupid little flit cuts right between us and is like, "Hey." I slam my fist into my other hand because she's as good as jumped.



Leticia: Girl fights are ugly. Girl fights are personal. And who's to say I wasn't seeing it from the wrong angle?

This is a "day in the life" story of three very different girls as they roam the halls of their school, with one of them unaware of what may happen to her after school.

I read Jumped with a lot of anticipation. The author describes the situation and the characters so well that it is easy to become engrossed in the story's plot. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a thriller without the horror or gruel.
