Stephen Gould is one of the few science fiction authors willing to take on teleportation, having made his own leap into the bigtime with Jumper. Now he's back with Impulse where a teenage girl starts out on the next generation of jumpers.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents' arms. She's teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she's never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger.

Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.
