Kowalski͛s latest title is a superb example of the novella as an art form. It completely engages the reader in a short period of time. Jumped In fuses both well-developed characters with a compelling action plotline. The novel touches on issues that include prejudice, social injustice, addictions, self-determination and more, in a contemporary urban setting. Rasheed is an engaging and likeable teen, adrift until he finds support and direction from an unexpected source. The tight plot and plain language act together to compel the reader to root for Rasheed and to hope that he is able to rise up out of this hopeless existence.
