- Publisher As the tears ran down my cheeks it seemed to me that my ears popped and my whole world jumped, just a millionth of a millionth of a centimeter, then dropped back into place. Nothing had changed and yet absolutely everything seemed altered. Dave is a sixteen-year-old boy at Southerton Comprehensive. School is either hostile or boring and his parents are depressing, but there's always his best friend Charlie to cheer him up, and the beautiful Sophie to dream about. Then one morning, the arrival of a mysterious CD ROM seemingly created just for him, draws him back into his tragic past. Who is the sender? What is the truth of his past? Even the excitement of swimming success and unexpected progress with Sophie can't distract Dave from his overwhelming need to answer these questions. As he struggles to find the answers he is caught up in an even greater mystery: What exactly is the point of life? My Whole World Jumped is a novel that presents the Alpha course in a way that is relevant and digestible.

- Publisher "Follow 16-year-old Dave Johnson as he grapples with the issues of everyday life: parents, girls, exams, failures, successes and the complexities of friendship."

Great to give to youth
5 stars By Jonathan, May 01 2012
I have found this resource a fantastic tool for putting in the hands of young people who are asking questions about faith and what it means to follow Jesus It tackles these issues in a non confronting way and the novel format means it is interesting for those who might not be up for reading something a little heavier It is real easy to read you can get through it in a few hours
