Exo AUTHOR Steven GouS hard to keep a secret like that And there are people dangerous people who work for governments and have guns who want to make you do just this one thing for them And when you’re a teenage girl things get even This book was so fucking boring that I couldn't finish it I have no idea how Gould managed to turn a story about a teenage teleport going into space into such a SNOOZE FEST but he did it Not only that but if you've read any of the other books the entire family does a complete reversal on their security paranoia Not only do they let Cent into space which I could see since she can do whatever she wants anyway but they throw themselves into starting an ENTIRE COMPANY based on their teleportation ability It's not like Davy spent the past twenty years trying to secure a comfortable and safe life for his family but whatever let's throw our abilities in the face of every space capable government on the planet because if they weren't ALREADY interested in capturing them and using them for their own means they SURE AS HELL ARE NOWCent is an outrageous character who knows pretty much everything already and has turned into a complete Mary Sue I couldn't give two craps about her any and I am completely turned off by this entire series Seriously what the hell

I hope so

Cent can teleport So can her parents but they are the only people in the world who can This is not as great as you might think it would be sure you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London but it’ 35 stars Too much science info dumping nearly made this novel impossible to get through I had to skim certain sections If you're into the characters and can already suspend disbelief why does it matter? I am sure it does to certain readers but not me On the Flash TV show they spout out a fact like you need to reach 600 mph to run up walls but make sure to keep that velocity on the way down that's all I need It probably isn't true but I don't care Now this book there is a lot of info dumping about building a pressure suit to withstand outer space building a space station out of dirigibles the hulls protected by ice well a lot of scientific facts and theories but in the end it's probably not as easy as the writer thinks and I get too tired to care For another novel that did this better see Red Thunder by John VarleyAside from these barriers it is a fairly enjoyable continuation of the story of Cent Millicent and her Mom Millie and Dad Davy Cent develops her Jumper powers in ways her parents never imagined and deals with her friends made in the last novel There are some great girl power scenes as 17 year old Cent starts a business in outer space and has funny interactions with the military and NASAAnother problem I had there was a threat to Cent's family an evil organization out to get them which was the main subject of the 2nd book Reflex They are still out to get the family but like the third book they really only appear in the last 10% of the book It feels like a cheap way to get a climax and I could see how they were going to be dealt with early on
