    " A fierce, thought-provoking read. Laugh out loud funny in some parts, gritty and sad in others. Loved the urban teen voice, fast pace, and staccato writing style. The optimist in me longed for someone to Do The Right Thing--maybe readers will. Great discussion book for high school, reminiscent of Julia Alvarez and Sandra Cisneros. "

    " I love Rita Williams-Garcia so I was excited to read her newest book. It was a great, quick read on a current, relevant topic. This will be perfect for high school girls who hate to read (and high school boys should like it too.) It will also serve as a conversation starter. The only fault I have with the book is that getting to know the characters got a bit tiresome at times. I felt that I knew Trina and Dominique after the first half of the book, I would have preferred a bit more focus on Leticia and her dilemma. All in all though, a great book by a great author! "

    " The word "gritty" keeps being used to describe this one, but that's not really a word I'd use. Yes, it is rough and has that real world flavor, but it's a tad too repetitive to be gritty. While the premise is good and the characters are solid, I felt that many of the chapters were just padding. The explosive conclusion--which caught me completely by surprise--is what really saves this book. This might not be a "must-read", but it's a "should-read". "

    " All I can say is I am so glad my high school was not like the one the girls in this book go to. It's a pretty harsh look at an inner city school where the girls are self-centered and mean as hell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TheSaint | 11/8/2013

    " Not ever having lived in a large inner city, I can't really judge whether the three voices in Jumped are authentic or not. Trina seems self-centered and clueless; Dominique seems self-centered and bitter; Leticia just seems self-centered. "

    " i HATED IT! it was pointless and stupid! Wrost endiong ever! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 6/16/2012

    " A book that would be interesting to discuss. I can't say I actually liked any of the characters... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 5/14/2012

    " Ethics in an inner-city high school. If you knew someone was going to be violently attacked, what would you do? Learn the story from all 3 girls involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 1/10/2012

    " I really liked the different voices in this book. You got to see multiple sides to the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 10/6/2011

    " The ending was a tad too melodramatic for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kacper | 4/27/2011

    " Rita Williams-Garcia came to our library and she was great :-))) I liked the book, although the ending was more dramatic than it needed to be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Savita | 4/2/2011

    " Nope. Not my style at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerri | 3/30/2011

    " I liked the changing points of view but I didn't like the running commentary in their heads. I got sick of the constant street talk. It wasn't nearly as good as I wanted it to be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 3/19/2011

    " I liked the differing viewpoints but the story seemed very stereotyped to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/3/2010

    " Read for bullying project. Interesting plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacia | 11/11/2010

    " Really different style: the book alternates between three very different high school girls, each telling their version of one day at school. CAUTION: If you like "happy" endings, avoid this book! "
