S 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 Of all the Jumper novels I enjoyed this one the least by far To say it needs editing is to say the Titanic had a little trouble on its maiden voyage A little research and technical detail can be a wonderful thing Too much and the flow becomes bogged down and unreadable Even a little tension and resistance to Cent's space program by bureaucrats or male chauvinists would have given the story the conflict it needed Instead we have the occasional and poorly structured afterthoughts of a conspiracy and an otherwise strong female lead character at the mercy of a dishonest boyfriend with a rather unconvincing sob story

Exo Author Steven GouComplicated High school Boys Global climate change refugees and genocide Orbital mechanicsBut Cent isn’t easily daunted and neither are Davy and Millie her parents She’s going to make some changes in the wor I was very much looking forward to reading Exo Its predecessor Impulse had been exciting and fascinating with a badass teleporting protagonist who used her wits as well as her ability Unfortunately I was to be profoundly disappointed with Exo which suffered not just from its premise but from Gould’s pigheaded determination to follow that premise to its conclusion no matter what the conseuences Exo centers around Cent’s determination to use her abilities to achieve low earth orbit A nice idea in theory but in practice it didn’t work outFirst the good parts because I don’t want this review to be profoundly negative Cent is as stubborn and competent as before perhaps a bit than is realistic but only a bit Her determination to forge her own path in a world that isn’t built for people like her is admirable The other characters are just as great The return of Cent’s friends Jade and Tara was welcome Their ingenuity brought a breath of fresh air into the storyAnd that fresh air was necessary because I felt like I was suffocating from boredom when I read this book I’m not a scientifically minded person But I imagine even a scientifically minded person would have gotten bored reading this book At times this book reads like a science textbook than a novel While the various challenges about space travel were vaguely fascinating at times it really got old fast But I accept that this is a matter of personal perception and another person might disagree with me hereThis wasn’t the worst part of the novel though No the problem with this novel is that over the course of the novel Cent or less reveals her secret to the world And instead of freaking out about mysterious teleporters and how they just are able to do that in the first place everyone pretty much takes it in stride No one cares This is the biggest scientific revelation since the discovery the world was round and no one gives a damn They’re interested in the fact that Cent is teleporting into space than the fact that she’s teleporting in the first place Then in the last fifty or so pages of the novel Cent is snatched by the bad guys These bad guys who appear to be just evil for the sake of being evil kidnap Cent and then are suddenly all put away by the government Who weren’t able to act against them beforehand but now suddenly are And although Cent is able to get a truly stupendous moment of total utter awesomeness at the end it isn’t enough to redeem this bookSo no I didn’t like Exo I didn’t like the second book either Perhaps only the odd number books in this series are good I hope so
