Steven Gould returns to the world of his classic novel Jumper in Impulse.

Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents' arms. She's teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she's never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger.

Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.

Being a fan of the "Jumper" books, I really liked this one also. I liked how every body has their own "tweak" on Jumping. I loved how Cent, like the penny grew into her powers and learned new tricks. I also liked how Davy and Milly interacted and that they are out helping others.

As a parent, I appreciate the addition of a teenage daughter to this particular mix. The psychologist-counselor mom and the uber-paranoid dad are a kind of comic relief to parenting, and oh yeah, they can all teleport:)

I enjoyed this trilogy and recommend it.

Continues the "Jumper" saga with the daughter, Millicent this time discovering her teleporting abilities. They come in handy when her snowboarding ability leads to her placement on her high school snowboarding team. Normal high school "fear and loathing" abounds as do interesting pals, but this is overall a pretty lightweight addition to the Jumper series, interesting mainkly because of the her using the teleporting abilities she has inherited.
