Description

In this 2009 National Book Award finalist, Rita Williams-Garcia proves that she has an "uncanny ability to project unique voices" (Publishers Weekly). Jumped is told in alternating points of view between three girls as they struggle to make tough choices when they become involved in a fight at their urban high school. "So well observed that the characters seem to leap off the page ."-Publishers Weekly

Professional reviews

"In one school day, three teenage girls tell their stories with highly individual perspectives on a day that will end in a violent clash. Dominique, a basketball player whose grades have benched her, has pent-up rage about a classmate while she pleads her case to a teacher to get her grade changed. Self-centered Leticia is preoccupied with her nails. And Trina is a flirty, narcissistic artist who goes about the day musing about how wonderful her work is. Each is given an appropriate personality from her respective narrator: Shari Peele's husky voice is perfect for Dominique. Cherise Booth's clear, demanding words fit Leticia. And Bianca Vasquez's flighty, carefree tone is spot-on for Trina. None of the girls are that likable, but their varied perspectives and the narrators' voices make this production enjoyable. M.B.
