Hard times come and Jack is sent to live with an aunt while his dad looks for a job.

I read this book as part of a book club selection for our church. It is an amazing coming of age story about an 11 year old boy named Jack and his unlikely friendship with the town's misunderstood reculse. It is a wonderful story of friendship and how we need to look at what is inside a person (something we all need reminding of at times). Jack's adventures through puberty will leave you giggling. At times, this book will make you tear up.

I am handing this book over to my 12 year old so he can
I loved this gem of a story! It is a beautifully written coming of age story from the perspective of an eleven year old boy during the late 50s.

There are a few moments that just tugged at the heart and others that caused pause for thought.

David Seaburn attended our book club after we read his book. Good read about people who are different and how they are viewed by others.
