Product Description

About the Author

David Pandolfe has been a bartender in Seattle, the front man for an alternative rock band in Los Angeles and a college writing teacher in Richmond (among other things).

One day, it occurred to him that sometimes these experiences felt like completely different lives altogether. Which got him to writing Jump When Ready, a novel about a bunch of teenagers trying to get over their past lives while getting ready to jump into their next. While he's still writing about himself in third person, David Pandolfe should probably mention that at one point he received an MFA degree in Creative Writing at Virginia Commonwealth University (yet another life).

how many times have I told myself 'no more book sets'? But after reading jump when ready I just HAD to buy the sequel. what a brilliant story with great characters and the afterlife or the in between life sounds amazing. I'd seen this book advertised but kept going passed it but eventually downloaded it for free and I'm so pleased I did. I had quite a few lumps in my throat at times and was rooting for Henry to get his sisters attention. With the help of his new (dead) friends he sets out to save his sister from kidnappers. I won't spoil the ending but with the group's various talents your promised a real tear jerker of an ending. Looking forward to the second book now. If this book was wrote for the YA audience in mind I don't care I'm 42 and would recommend it

Bethany is abducted and held hostage by a boy that she considered a friend. Her brother Henry and his friends do everything in their power to rescue her and try and save her when she is continually drugged. The thing is though, Henry died a few week ago and wants to make sure that his sister doesn’t suffer the same fate..

This is a remarkable book which made me laugh, cry and everything in between in a good way. An uplifting story with some moral reminders- how if we are angry it sits with us and can make our lives hell unless we let it go which we have the power to do and move on.
A memorable story which will stay with me for all of the right reasons and maybe a few hopes on the way.

Not usually my type of book, but this author has a knack of capturing the readers imagination, and the characters are diverse and intriguing. Henry has an interesting tale to tell,and his new friends are complex and believable, even though the story is a fantasy. I laughed at some parts, was saddened by others, and was sorry when the book ended.
If you have not tried this author, give his books a go, you will not be disappointed.
N.B. Stick with it, you may think at first that the book is not your style, but it will soon pull you in, so you want to know more.

I read many type of books and am 72 years of age. I have to say, this was one of the best books I have ever read. I could not put it down until I finished it. By that time I even had a few tears in my eyes. Yes, I guess I am a soft hearted type of person as well. Lovely book and would recommend it to any age. Thank you for allowing me to read it in the free book section.

I wasn't expecting this book to be so good,its one of those books that you start reading and then you see it has more depth than you were expecting,well that was the case with me anyway.No spoilers but there was a lot going on a great story and also a lot to think about.I admit I was really moved by the ending it was sweet and thought provoking.I thought this was a cracking book and I want to read the next one now.

By Ancient Mariner TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Mar. 2015
Format: Paperback
When I first read the blurb for this book I had two distinct reactions. On the one hand I thought this could be an imaginative, exciting, thoughtful and creative variation on the teen adventure/thriller. On the other hand this could be a heavyhanded teen crime/suspense novel with an odd take on life/death or heaven/hell, and heavy reliance on teen angst and drama. Guess what? First reaction was right, and this is even better than I could have hoped.

We have a motley crew of teens who have to resolve their differences and come together as a team to save our hero's sister. But, they have to do it as spirits - teens who have died but have not yet crossed over. So, they have to come to grips with their limited ability to effect the real world and they have to rely on each other's unique strengths and abilities to accomplish their task. This isn't some heaven/hell allegory; if anything it is a very sly and knowing engagement with the powerlessness that teens often feel as they confront the real world. And that just slips in there between the lines.

What is up front is the camaraderie, banter, general good humor and fundamental decency of the teens. What spices it all isn't just the suspense plot, but the marvelously creative in-between world the author has imagined. That world is not presented through exposition or monologuing. Our recently deceased hero has to figure out how things work and what's going on, and understanding is parceled out in bits and pieces as the story unfolds. This keeps the reader focused and invested in the in-between world, and how it works and what it means is slowly unveiled. It is a wonderful job of timing and pacing, and sometimes the reader is ahead of the curve and sometimes behind, but is always into following the action.

I received this book as a thank you for writing a review of David`s other excellent book "Streetlights like fireworks " and I must say I feel honored to have had the chance to read such a wonderfully charming, book.How he dealt with some very hard issues in a sensible and sensitive way that kept me glued to the pages ,the story was intense scary and uplifting I would certainly recommend it, and my children will be reading it too.David`s vision of the afterlife reflects my own way of understanding but even if it is not your view you should read it for the great story and characters,all in all this shines out to everyone and I look forward to the next book with anticipation
