First of all, I loved Jumpstart the World! Loved, loved, loved it.

Took the subway back down to the vet’s. Everybody who worked there knew I was a friend of Frank’s. So this older woman from behind the desk let me come in the back and see Toto that for just everybody. A couple of women passed us in the hall, and smiled at me like they felt sorry for me. Like they wished we could have better news. She took me into a room full of cages. The dogs were all on one side, and two of them stood up and wagged their tails at me. One pawed gently at the bars. I guess we all just want to go home

Sometimes I feel like I want to make a secret tape of one of her monologues about the world. I could count the number of times she used those two words.

Jumpstart the World by Catherine Ryan Hyde. This book has been nominated for a couple of Lambda Literary Awards, among other awards, and it's just a lovely story, a tender tale of a young girl's crush on an older transman, and her confusion and discomfort about what it means about herself. It's more of a coming of age story than a romance, but the author deftly handled so many difficult issues - I'm still being a little bit blown away, to be honest. This one I recommend for teenagers and adults.

I'm sort of winding my way through some books featuring trans characters, just to get an idea of what's out there and how writers are portraying transgender people and situations. Jumpstart the World did a phenomenal job of having a non-activist trans character, who was not the protagonist, be present to demonstrate that trans people are just people, like the rest of us - but also the author managed to show in simple but clear ways some of the frightening things about being trans. The fear of friends leaving, the fear of being helpless. And all of this without direct trans character POV, all of this without the sense of the reader being taught to or lectured.

Honestly? Everyone should read this book.

I am a great fan of Catherine Ryan Hyde and have read all of her books. Each is different and reminds me of things I already know and things I should know. Interpersonal relationships are her specialty. Each book reminds us of our humanity in a most entertaining way. Jumpstart the World is the story of a young 15 year old girl who has been moved into an apartment by her mother, to live there alone. The mother’s current boyfriend wants no part of a teenager. The friends the girl makes and the experiences she has, make for another 5 star book. Even though I am a grandmother I greatly enjoyed this book.

Elle is a girl who doesn't belong anyplace--not even in her own home, after her mother sends her packing to accommodate her latest boyfriend. Elle finds herself thrust into a new apartment, facing the prospect of a new school, and she's alone. But she's used to being alone.

Then she meets Frank and Molly, and a gang of friends at school, who are Different. Or are they? Elle's friendship and interactions with them deftly changes what it means to be beautiful, what it means to be special, and what it means to be true to the person that resides inside.

Catherine Ryan Hyde's style reads is as if we have been given someone's diary and for just a few hours, we are allowed entrance into their secret world. We sit alongside Elle as she rides through the bumps, bruises and highs of her journey. More than that, Ms. Ryan Hyde captures silence like very few writers can. She takes the moments where everything is still, and she lets them just hold.

Because we read a diary, the exposition does not preach like it might in someone else's hands. With Ms. Ryan Hyde, the events, feelings and conclusions simply are. The way everything plays out is the only way it ever could; the way we would expect it to if this indeed was a journal capturing a snapshot of someone else's life.

"Jumpstart the World" is the story you read in a Saturday afternoon, so you can spend all day Sunday mulling over the imagery and the moments that rang true. Then the people and their lives creep into your heart and get absorbed into your lifeblood and stay with you in ways you can't begin to imagine a few thousand words possibly can.

Catherine Ryan Hyde delivers yet another deeply honest and raw rendition of what it means to be alive in our current times; somehow she can pull this off for eighteen books straight and it is always haunting and exquisite to see how the lives intertwine, and how the characters find their own kind of happy ending. Not the fairy tale kind, but the kinds that are around us, waiting to be realized, in the world we can reach out and make our own.

Catherine Ryan Hyde has a way of looking at a social issue as deep and complex as LGTB relationships and acceptance and reminding us that in the end that people matter. Our main character Elle is put into a complex situation. She is abandoned emotionally by her mother and befriended by Frank. Elle also is befriended by several gay and lesbian friends who are outcasts in their own worlds. Ryan Hyde is a master of meaningful and realistic dialogue. She puts us in the room with Elle and these characters, reminding us that while the world looks at exterior, God looks at the heart. So should we. Great read!

I ALWAYS ENJOY THIS AUTHOR'S BOOKS. THE SUBJECT MATTER IN THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT. ELLE, THE MAIN CHARACTER, HAS BEEN DUMPED BY HER MOTHER INTO HER OWN APARTMENT AT THE AGE OF FIFTEEN AS THE MOTHER'S "BOYFRIEND" DOESN'T WANT TO BE BOTHERED WITH KIDS. THE GUY NEXT DOOR BEFRIENDS HER AND ELLE THINKS SHE HAS A CRUSH ON HIM, WHICH GETS REALLY COMPLICATED.
SHE HAS TO START IN A NEW SCHOOL AND IMMEDIATELY GETS INVOLVED WITH A GROUP OF KIDS WHO ARE ALL GAY. IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THEY COPE, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS A GROUP, AND HOW ELLE DEALS WITH THEIR DIFFERENCES.
I CAN'T IMAGINE BEING PUT OUT ON YOUR OWN AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE BUT SHE HANDLES IT MUCH BETTER THAN I WOULD HAVE AT FIFTEEN.
ELLE LEARNS EMPATHY AND ACCEPTANCE SOONER THAN MOST OF US DID AND I FELT LIKE THERE WAS LOTS OF "TEACHABLE MOMENTS" IN THIS STORY.
I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
