Description

Amy Lennox doesn't know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother's childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay.

Amy's grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House—but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy's new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts—at whatever cost.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 07, 2016 – Fifteen-year-old Amy Lennox has grown up in Germany, but after a traumatic spring she talks her mother into taking them back to her birthplace, the island of Stormsay off the coast of Scotland. Amy's family and another clan, the Macalisters, are keepers of a secret library of texts that date back centuries, and they can "jump" into stories, interacting with their characters, so long as they stay "in the margins, between the lines." But a thief is also jumping into books and stealing the authors' ideas, ruining the books. Amy and Will Macalister try to solve the mystery before more stories are destroyed. Amy also learns the identity of her father in a less-developed story line. The lore of the two families and German author Gl ser's descriptions of Stormsay and the library are meticulous and moody, creating a gothic atmosphere that serves this star-crossed love story well. Meetings with book characters, like Kipling's Shere Khan and Dickens's Oliver Twist, offer entertaining moments that balance the grimmer elements of the story as it builds to a bittersweet ending. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

Amazing!!!!!

I thought this book was really good! At first it was a little slow, but after the about the seventh or sixth chapter it was a cracking page turner. The only thing I didn't like was the language. There was only three words throughout the book. But other than that it was amazing!!! In my point of view it's like an action, adventure, mystery, and romance book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes books like with all those things. And again this book was amazing!!!!
