Jump Cut

Title: Jump Cut
Author:  Ted Staunton
Publisher: Orca
ISBN: 978-1-55469-947-6
Why Read?: Early Review
Challenges: YA Contemporary, Free Reads, A to Z, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: Each of the books in the Seven series follows a grandson as he carries out his grandfather's last request.  Jump Cut is Spencer O'Toole's story.  Because he dreams of being a filmmaker, Grandpa D sends Spencer to visit aging B-movie star Gloria Lorraine and film her giving him a kiss on the cheek.  Spencer cannot understand the reason behind the request, but that is all part of what proves to be an interesting journey as Spencer, as do all good YA protagonists, learns a lot about himself along the way.  This is a wonderful, quick read perfect for more reluctant readers or anyone who enjoys a good YA aimed at boys.

Rating: 4 stars
