Beloved author Rita Williams-Garcia intertwines the lives of three very different teens in this fast-paced, gritty narrative about choices and the impact that even the most seemingly insignificant ones can have. A National Book Award finalist.


Jumped is the story of one day in the life of three very different girls at a huge high school in New York City. There’s Trinia, a pretty, self-involved artist who’s sure she’s bringing beauty and color to the lives of everyone around her, regardless of what they really think. There’s Leticia, who skates by on minimal effort; she’s more interested in her cell phone, her nails, and gossip than school. And there’s Dominque, an angry basketball player who’s been benched for low grades.


When Trinia unknowingly offends Dominique, Dominique declares that she’s going to jump Trinia—and Leticia is the only witness. Will Leticia warn Trinia? Will she let the beatdown happen? Weaving in and out of the girls' perspectives, readers will find themselves with three different voices and sides to one story.
