Steven Gould's SF vintage, Jumper.
Davy can teleport. He first discovers his expertise in the course of a savage beating brought by means of his abusive father, while Davy jumps right away to the most secure position he understands, his small-town public library. As his mom did such a lot of years ahead of, Davy vows by no means to move domestic back. as an alternative, he units off, younger and green, for brand spanking new York City.
Davy progressively learns to take advantage of and keep an eye on his powers, first for sheer survival in an atmosphere extra violent and intricate than he ever imagined. yet mere survival isn't adequate for Davy. He desires to understand if his mom disappeared so thoroughly from his existence simply because she, too, may possibly bounce. And as he searches for a hint of a person else with powers like his personal, he learns to take advantage of his skills for greater than get away and robbery.
A younger guy with not anything to lose, and the power to move at any place he wishes, can assist lots of people. yet he may also make loads of difficulty, and ultimately difficulty goes to come back trying to find him. the single approach Davy can consider to find others who can bounce is to make himself obvious to them, but when he does, the police would definitely locate him too.
