About this product
- DescriptionJumper: Griffin's Story was written by Gould to compliment the 2008 film Jumper starring Samuel L Jackson. The vel explores the life of Griffin O'Conr as he uses his teleportation powers to hunt his parents' murderers. Rule One: Never jump where someone can see you. Rule Two: Never jump near home. Rule Three: Never jump to or from the same place twice. Rule Four: Only jump if you have, only if they find you. The first time it happened, Griffin O'Conr was only five years old; he jumped from the steps of the Martyr's Memorial in Oxford, in front of a busload of tourists. The second time it happened his family had to cross an ocean to protect his secret. But four years later Griff accidentally broke his parent's rules and jumped again. That night the men from Oxford found them, and by morning his parents had been murdered, leaving Griff alone, wounded and only nine years old. Griffin grows up with only two goals: to survive, and to kill the people who want him dead. And a Jumper bent on revenge is t going to let anything stand in his way.
