Jumper: Griffin's Story is a novel by Steven Gould released August 21, 2007, as a prequel to the movie Jumper. It follows the character Griffin as he deals with the death of his parents and the relentless pursuit of the Paladins through his adolescent and teenage years. The novel has no connection to Jumper, Reflex, Impulse, or Exo, but rather more faithful to the movie. A video game based loosely on the movie and the novel was released on February 12, 2008.


The novel focuses on the character Griffin which was created by screenwriter David Goyer specifically for the film. Because Griffin had not appeared in Gould's two prior Jumper novels (dealing with David Rice and Millie Harrison), Gould developed Jumper: Griffin's Story as a backstory of the character's early childhood before the film. When writing the novel, Gould had to work closely with a producer of the film to ensure that the story did not conflict with the film's premise.
