Jacky the Brave by Jim Sellers
"Sometimes I find teen books too angst-y, but the author hit a perfect - and realistic - balance. I didn't really know anything about this story before I started reading it and it hit me right in the feels! I was crying and laughing through most of..." Read more of this review »
