Davy can teleport. He discovers his unexpected talent when his abusive father tries to beat him once too often. Davy jumps instantaneously to the safest place he knows, his small-town public library. Then, as his mother old so many years before. Davy vows never to go home again - he sets off, young and inexperienced, for New York City.
Davy must learn to use and control his power in an environment more violent and complex than he ever imagined. But mere survival is not enough for him.
A young man with the ability to go anyplace he wants to can make a lot of trouble, and sooner or later trouble is going to come looking for him. The one way Davy can think of to locate others who can Jump is to make himself visible to them. And that´s a dangerous game.
