{Tour Stop} EXO by Steven Gould—Tens List + Giveaway

Exo
by Steven Gould

 
JUMPER BOOK FOUR

Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be — sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it’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 more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.

But Cent isn’t easily daunted, and neither are Davy and Millie, her parents. She’s going to make some changes in the world.

TEN QUOTES FROM EXO


1. “Looks like frostbite.”

2. “Tell Dad about breaking the guys jaw—he’ll like that.”

3. “Don’t make be hungry. You won’t like me when I’m hungry.”

4. “Tell him to stay longer next time.”

5. Forget the unarmed combat training—this guy is dangerous in lots of ways.

6. “I haven’t cleared any human trials with the institutional review board. Uh, you are human, right?”

7. “Two hundred and three miles, three hundred and twenty-seven kilometers. It it was good enough for Yuri, it’s good enough for me.”

8. “Uh, how long are you going to be doing this?” “Oh, we’re going to operating for several years. Or did you mean today? Just this one orbit. We’ll be off the air in another thirty minutes, but depending on our post-mission analysis, I’m deorbiting a satellite tomorrow.” I heard a sharp intake of breath. “Oh, don’t worry,” I added. “It’s not one of yours.”

9. “No! JE suis Spartacus!”
10. For Alisha, Welcome to the Womaned Space Program! Best wishes, Space Girl. ps.—this is my first autograph ever.
