I have been given the opportunity to read Glassford Girl: Part 1 in the Emily Heat Time Jumper Series by Jay J. Falconer, by inkspand, in exchange for an honest review.
Emily Heart is fifteen. Emily Heart is a jumper.
Jay creates a wonderful visual of Emily’s jumps. Before the jump there is the feeling and countdown. After the jump there is the feeling of being pressed and cooked from the inside out- leaving her with a dry mouth, pain, AND possibly worst of all- naked.
For Emily she’d been jumping for two years. For the rest of us thirty years had gone by. The jumps were beginning to cover shorter distances of time. Emily hoped this meant they were beginning to wind down so many things in her life have been lost including her family and friends.
No one knows who Emily is. No one is searching other than Jim Miller. He wants to know why she hasn’t aged in twenty years. He tried to go to the police ten years ago, but no one would believe him, so he’s decided to find the answers for himself. Fortunately, for him, the police scanner and his diligence leads him to the scene of her apprehension and disappearance, again! He has to know why the girl with red hair never seems to change, never seems to grow older every time he sees her picture or face on TV.
This was a quick read and I loved every minute of it, (no pun intended)! Glassford Girl is an easy five star read! I can’t wait to read other books in the series. I highly recommend this book to my friends and anyone who likes to read books with twists and turns!
