Jump was in the top ten of the Swiss Bestseller List for nine weeks, currently at # 13. 

Swiss public broadcaster SRF did a portrait of Simone Lappert here.

»When I was reading the novel in preparation for the evening, I was so immersed in it that I missed my tram stop.« Christian Berzins / NZZ am Sonntag, Zurich

»Simone Lappert uses this [the event] like a key which opens the psyche of her characters, whilst shedding light on the state of society.«
Martin Ebel / Süddeutsche Zeitung, Munich

»Lappert’s writing style is emotive, vivid, empathic.«
Caroline Micaela Hauger / Schweizer Illustrierte, Zurich

Aside from that, pro helvetia (the Swiss national institute for the promotion of culture) presented Jump in their brochure 12 Swiss Books.
