Jumped by Rita Williams-Garcia
“Sometimes what you don’t say means more than what you do…”
Bouncy Trina, with her mind on her art, brushes past Dominique. Dominique, already angry, is insulted by Trina blowing past her, and vows to jump Trina after school. Leticia overhears Dominique’s plan and can see that Trina doesn’t have a clue what’s in store for her. Should Leticia tell what she knows? What would you do?
Jumped is an intense story of one day in the life of 3 girls – and the drama that results when their paths cross. Each chapter of this powerful book is written in the voice of Trina, Dominique or Leticia. I rate this book a 9 out of 10, and recommend it to anyone who is looking for an exciting story that’s also a fast read.
