Review: Jump (Carbone)

Title: Jump
Author: Carbone
Genre: Fiction, Runaways, Climbing
Pages: 258
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!

This is a lesson is why I always have a book in my car. (Okay, my son would tell you that I have TOO MANY books in my car and not enough room for people to sit). Saturday night, coming back from a baseball tournament in Lacey, we hit massive traffic on I-5. It took us over an hour to go 8 miles. What to do? Read a book, of course! (I wasn't the driver...it was okay).

PK has jumped. A wild, crazy jump from a restrictive life in a boarding school into a life of total adventure—rock-climbing out west with a cute guy she barely knows. At first, everything’s amazing. The two are climbing in beautiful national parks like Yosemite, completely free from any responsibilities. Then the cops show up . . . with an arrest warrant.

I always like books told in alternating perspectives, and this one does not disappoint. Each chapter alternates between PK and Critter (the cute guy), and together their stories present a fast-paced adventure. Great for summer reading, expect to see it on my list!
