Jumper [is] one of those rare books that can be read as a YA or a book for adults; like Ender's Game or vintage Heinlein.”—Cory Doctorow

Reflex is a fun, fast-paced novel… You don’t need to have read Jumper to enjoy the new novel, but all three of the books mentioned here are highly recommended.”—Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction

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.

  1. My scariest dreams have had to do with family members or my dogs (which are my children) dying. I have a lot of recurring dreams about needing to finish work in college or classes that I've just completely forgotten to attend. Also, as a teacher, I have a lot of back to school dreams where I've been thrown into a classroom of my worst students ever and I can't find my lesson plans anywhere.

  2. I do not have many scary dreams, but I do have many WEIRD dreams-don't know where they come from!!! The scariest dream I have had, and had it several times, was when I was younger, and it was always of drowning.

  3. I used to have scary dreams about monsters chasing me and that sort of thing. Now the only scary dreams I have involve my wife or my dog getting killed somehow. I think those two things really are my worst nightmare, asleep or awake.

  4. fortunately I don't have reoccurring nightmares! I think the scarest dream that I can remember was a weird dream in which I found out both my parents were killed in a car crash. It was so spooky b/c it felt so real. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I've always have bad dreams about me sleeping in a moving floor, and I could not move or anything, could not breath or anything and could also not close my eyes shut. It's like being trap in the darkness.. and you're spinning... and you're suffocating... and you're paralyzed. SCARY

  6. I don't have scary dreams, just very weird ones & they depend upon what I had to eat before bed. A lot of my dreams seem to be a continuation of my day, just skewed.

  7. I don't have nightmares about falling or dying, maybe I'm just not scared about that. I only have three kinds of recurring bad dreams which I'd say are connected to anxiety. One kind is where I dream I'm late for school or university or haven't done my homework/studied for exams and will fail etc, and it's always a relief to wake up and find that is that it's almost a decade since I finished any schooling:) The second is where I dream that my teeth have all rotten away or fallen out. And also occasionally, quite rarely, I dream about running away from somebody/something in my dreams, some danger.
