Are You Ready ,When I first read the blurb for this book I had two distinct reactions On the one hand I thought this could be an imaginative, exciting, thoughtful and creative variation on the teen adventure thriller On the other hand this could be a heavyhanded teen crime suspense novel with an odd take on life death or heaven hell, and heavy reliance on teen angst and drama Guess what First reaction was right, and this is even better than I could have hoped.We have a motley crew of teens w Are You Ready ,When I first read the blurb for this book I had two distinct reactions On the one hand I thought this could be an imaginative, exciting, thoughtful and creative variation on the teen adventure thriller On the other hand this could be a heavyhanded teen crime suspense novel with an odd take on life death or heaven hell, and heavy reliance on teen angst and drama Guess what First reaction was right, and this is even better than I could have hoped.We have a motley crew of teens who have to resolve their differences and come together as a team to save our hero s sister But, they have to do it as spirits teens who have died but have not yet crossed over So, they have to come to grips with their limited ability to effect the real world and they have to rely on each other s unique strengths and abilities to accomplish their task This isn t some heaven hell allegory if anything it is a very sly and knowing engagement with the powerlessness that teens often feel as they confront the real world And that just slips in there between the lines.What is up front is the camaraderie, banter, general good humor and fundamental decency of the teens What spices it all isn t just the suspense plot, but the marvelously creative in between world the author has imagined That world is not presented through exposition or monologuing Our recently deceased hero has to figure out how things work and what s going on, and understanding is parceled out in bits and pieces as the story unfolds This keeps the reader focused and invested in the in between world, and how it works and what it means is slowly unveiled It is a wonderful job of timing and pacing, and sometimes the reader is ahead of the curve and sometimes behind, but is always into following the action.So, this is well conceived, well crafted, a bit challenging for a YA reader, and very rewarding What a nice find Please note that I found this book while browsingKindle freebies I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book As seen on my blog What a great throwback to the contemporary YA fiction I started off reading a year ago It also didn t hurt that Jump When Ready had a great paranormal twist added to it I appreciated the subtlety of itthan anything else, the idea

far off from the reality he lived in before his death, but withquestions about his life than he ever had when he was breathing Missing his family, and devastated for causing them pain, he s determined to get through to them somehow What he didn t predict, was that he d become witness to a horrific scene involving his sister being abducted and held against her will What ensues is a world of rules, bending those rules, and learning from the new group of people around him, all of whom have spent muchtime being dead How will he help his sister before it s too late Who is willing to help him do that I loved the almost dual storyline played out inJump When ReadyHenry struggling to accept his new fate, while desperately trying to prevent his sister from meeting hers It was the perfect grounds for what I think the author was trying to achieve, a coming of age story with elements of the age old questions What happens after we die Is it possible to get another chance I soaked in every last bit of detail that described Henry s new surroundings, the fact that anything was possible in his new state, every wish, every thought, manifested before your eyes it made for some beautifully descriptive scenery Who said the dead don t eat You want the biggest burger you can fathom Done It was those little elements, mixed with such deep, and profound ones, that madeJump When Readya solid piece of literature.I ve been spoiled with trilogies, sequels, and companion novels, and as much as I want the chance to spendtime with the characters I met inJump When Ready , I loved and hope , that this book was is a standalone It impacted my thoughts in a serious way, and I will most likely spend the next few days going over it, and over it, in my head.Recommended for Fans of YA Contemporary,

interaction between them The idea of a group of friends from different decades, with different experiences and frames of reference, is really cool, and worked well within the world David created The story of Henry s sister s abduction is intense and heart wrenching David kept me guessing as to how it would all play out, and I felt Henry s desperation and fear for Bethany right along with him All of the characters in this book were really well developed, and that included the bad guys who kidnapped Bethany as well There are difficult topics addressed in this book suicide, abduction, and the obvious death and I think all are handled with sensitivity and respect Despite the serious themes, the story stays surprisingly upbeat, with an incredibly poignant ending that had me in tears the good kind Seriously The ending made this book for me All the pieces were engaging and kept me reading, but the way David tied everything up made me want to go back to the beginning and read it all over again, just to appreciate how it all comes together When I came to the end, I was happy to have had the experience of following Henry s story and touched by the time I spent in David s world I highly
