Killing her grandmother was a choice Helena Hunter made all
by herself, but she wasn't thinking about the consequences
of her actions when she pulled the trigger. Back home after
eight years in prison, she finds that the little girl she
left behind is now a teenage stranger who thinks her mother
might be a monster. The family members who labeled her the
black sheep want her to forget the fact that they all played
a part in her downfall. And the wonder of being free again
is overshadowed by the fear of a future filled with
Shaking the stigma of incarceration proves to be more than
Lena bargained for. Before her life went to hell, she was a
middle-class computer geek and a proud parent. Now that
she's been labeled a menace to society, she is a walking,
talking poster child for what can happen to victims who take
the law into their own hands.
Experience is the best teacher, though, and whatever lessons
Lena hasn't learned, she soon will--from the most unlikely
sources. Complete freedom is possible, but only when the
truth is finally revealed and the ghosts from her past are
Those brave enough to step into Lena's world will be left
asking themselves one burning question: "What would I have

I would really love to read your book!! The story line has to do with someone close to me, although not with murder, and it would really help to give me more understanding on the subject. Perhaps I'll be able to grieve along with them after reading your book. Thank you so much for doing a service for people that need to get some understanding on the subject. Best of luck on your future books.

Sounds like a very emotional read. Thank you so much for sharing about WPBP. I will be contacting them to see if I can find some books that are appropriate for donation.
Good luck and happy writing!
(Tracie Travis 10:07pm May 27, 2011)
What a great story. This is a book I must read.
(Gillian Sawaged 10:58pm May 27, 2011)
You certainly explained everything well enough to get me to put Jump on my to-read list. I'm looking forward to reading it.
(Leni Kaye 12:12pm May 28, 2011)
Thanks so much for joining me here on the fabulous Fresh
Fiction Blog, and for your wonderful comments and kind
words! I hope you all do decide to pick up a copy of Jump,
because I would love to hear your feedback on the story.
Looking forward to it! I'm also happy to bring a little more
exposure to WPBP. I just recently learned about the project
myself and I'm determined to make a donation(s). We all know
that books can and do change people's lives everyday... I
know they certainly changed mine. I can't imagine a world
without them and I believe that there are women in prison
who might begin to imagine a different and better world for
themselves once they discover all that books have to offer.
So hopefully, together, we can make a difference. Along
those same lines, I hope Jump makes a difference in
someone's life, too!
Again, thanks so much! Your support is humbling and greatly

I'm excited to read JUMP. All of Little's character's in Where there's smoke 1 and 2, and Running from Mercy are likable. I wonder whats going on with them, who got into some mess...LOL So I know this book is going to be good. I can't wait to get my copy. I love her writing.
