Sky Jumpers: Book 1

We rated this book:


In the wreckage after World War III and its green bombs, small towns have emerged. Hope lives in just such a town, called White Rock. Unable to invent, as her town expects from all its citizens, Hope
struggles to fit in. Because of her lack of inventing skill, Hope chooses to invest more time in the other skills that she finds strength in, like sky jumping into the Bomb’s Breath, the toxic band of air left by the bombs. However, when bandits invade the town, seeking priceless antibiotics, Hope’s daredevil nature may just save her world

.A book so exhilarating, it could be compared to actual sky diving, this book had realistic characters, exciting plot and an interesting setting. Hope is a great protagonist whose perspective is often the same as the reader’s perspective on things. I like this because it makes the entire story seem possible. The content and vocabulary render the book friendly to all listeners, and the plot holds readers tight and does not let go till the end of the story. I gave it five stars for an immersive experience that included humor and action in a child-friendly manner.
