The Jumper Chronicles

"Hey! My name is Charlie Burrows. I am twelve years old and currently running for my life, so I need to make this brief. Eight months ago I discovered that I was a descendant of the ancient Druids of England. Big deal, right? That's what I thought too until my best friend Bailey began being able to hurl huge boulders into the air using her mind. Yep, it turns out that we both have x-men like abilities that our parents never told us about! Thanks so much, Mom. You would think she could have at least been honest with me when I asked her to check for monsters under the bed. 'Yes dear, that is just an escaped troll from the fourth kingdom; animal control is on their way.’ To be fair, my father who disappeared when I was two is the one who should have told me, but like I said he disappeared.

So I was transported – well, kidnapped really – to this school where they train freaks like me to be part of the Order, which is too hard to explain right now, because I have the entire Vanari army (bad guys) trying to find me before I decode this ancient map that could bring the Norse Gods back to life.

So, to cap it off, it has been a rough year of dealing with my new abilities, trying to pass algebra, finding a father I never remember meeting, and trying to keep humanity alive. Okay, that splintering wood sound is the front door of the castle. I have to run. If you want to learn more about me then read this book, but you're probably better off not knowing because I have not had a solid night’s sleep since I learned that monsters under the bed are actually real."
