Product Description

GOLD MEDAL WINNER IN THE WISHING SHELF BOOK AWARDS 2014

A teenage adventure book for boys and girls. Age 10 and over.



A thrilling mystery book with action & adventure and contemporary themes. Ideal for teenagers and boys and girls aged 10 to 14. A story about friendship, family, loss, bravery and overcoming adversity.



The truth is out there somewhere . . . but how far is Jack willing to jump to find it? Jack Phillips's allergy to sunshine confines him to the shadows, leaving him lonely and at risk of life-threatening burns every time he steps into the light. Shadow jumping on the rooftops at dusk makes him feel alive. And free.



But Jack's condition is suddenly worse than ever and only his missing scientist dad can save him. As Jack and his new friend, Beth, begin their frantic search and delve into his dad's past for clues, they have no idea what they are about to uncover. Shocking rumours and dark secrets bombard them at every turn.



Jack is brave on the roofs. But can he find the courage to face the truth?

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR

Q: How did you decide to write for 10-14 year olds?

A: When I was about 11-14 years old I loved reading action & adventure stories and mysteries. Being totally involved in the story and trying to figure out what was going to happen next was great fun, and for me this was the age when I first became really aware of how fantastic it was to read a well-written, gripping story. I wanted to recreate that feeling in SHADOW JUMPER - to be action-filled and a page-turner but to also tackle contemporary themes and issues.



Q: What/who inspired the main character, Jack, in SHADOW JUMPER?

I have to blame my sons for Jack's main preoccupation of shadow jumping! As children they didn't use to walk to school so much as jump between shadows on the pavement. I put this together with the idea of a boy sensitive to sunlight (a real condition that my dad suffers from, though not in such a severe form) and came up with Jack.



Q. Is this book for boys or girls?

Both! Boys and girls between the ages of 10-14, teens and preteens, have read and loved it (although older and younger children have also read and enjoyed it), so I hope you will too. And it really has something to satisfy all age groups. If you love a fast-paced mystery adventure with lots of plot twists, then SHADOW JUMPER could be the right book for you, your child or grandchild. And I'd love to know what you think of it, so do leave a review on here if you liked it.



J M Forster is the awarding-winning writer of mystery books for 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 year olds, action and adventure stories, teen & young adult mysteries and thrillers, fantasy, teenage adventure books for girls, teen books for boys, books for boys 9-12, children's books age 9 - 11.
