Elle is a loner She doesn’t need people Which is a good thing because she’s on her own she had to move into her own apartment so her mother’s boyfriend won’t have to deal with her Then she meets Frank the guy who lives next door He’s older and has a girlfriend but. I could say this book is an important contribution to the LGBT reading community and it is but that would be selling the book far too short Jumpstart the World is indeed an important tale but it s a grace to many groups to those of us who have experienced unreuited love to those of us who ache to belong but are not mainstream to we who continually make mistakes but have a strong and gentle heart In short this book is for everybody It would melt the heart of the most hardened homophobictransphobic person alive if only they would open the pages and read Elle s story This book healsElle is an abandoned teen and searching for approval so hard it hurts She seems to want this attention from a certain type of person instead she finds offers of friendship from a misfit group of kids some of whom are openly gay This disuiets Elle on many levels She falls in love with Frank her neighbor who is also a type of misfit which pains Elle as well Learning about her new friends and who they love is a difficult part of Elle s journeyJumpstart is told in simple plain prose and somehow that makes every revelation Elle experiences visceral Sometimes Elle s thoughts aren t pretty and this is addressed in spare language Sometimes what happens is so beautiful the straightforward words are like fists to the gut causing a sharp intake and holding of breath a resonance so deep you want to hold it forever Both the ugly and the beautiful are here existing side by side and that is how this book tastes like truthWhen I finished Jumpstart the World I wanted to buy truckloads of it and stand on street corners handing the book to strangers There s so much power in this slim novel power to change It s a miracle of a read and if there s one thing this story can do it s take closed minds and open them wide and bare It s a book to jumpstart the healing

Jumpstart the World

Urned upside down  Now she’ll have to search inside herself to find not only the true meaning of friendship but her own role in jumpstarting the world Tender honest and compassionate Jumpstart the World is a stunning story to make you laugh cry and honor the power of love. A short good book on accepting differences in people I mainly read it because Catherine s writing is like a comfort to me We all find authors we love that is me and Catherine Ryan Hyde we may go steady soon

Elle can’t stop thinking about him Frank isn’t like anyone Elle has ever met He listens to her He’s gentle And Elle is falling for him hard But Frank is different in a way that Elle was never prepared for he’s transgender And when Elle learns the truth her world is t. Okay so I had to read this book for book club and let me tell you it s god awful If you think this book is a good representation of the LGBTIA community you re sadly mistaken Not only does this book sound like it was written by a third grader but the characters are nothing than their sexualgender identity Elle is the only one that isn t because the only thing her character even does is do things in spite of others getting the cat to piss off her mom cut her hair because her mom liked her hair and or because of others she does photography because the neighbor likes to take pictures etc She s seriously terrible And then Frank isn t even an actual good character he s nothing than being trans The Bobs are just gay there s nothing in the entire book that makes them seem like actual people One of the things that ticks me off the most is gay characters that are nothing than gay there s nothing else to them You can t say gays are people too and then not even write them as people you write them as just merely plot elements and an accessory to the story or main character
