Did you ever feel like you didn't belong to your family, your life, or even your world? Jack felt this way for as long as he could remember. His family barely acknowledged him and his classmates didn't care enough about him to even bully him. He thought all this was normal until he moved to his Aunt and Uncles home, during his parents separation. This town is completely opposite of everything he's ever known. Everyone seems to know who he is and seem to be waiting for something involving him. With the help of his first friends of his life, he is trying to uncover the mystery behind why his life has been so different and maybe save the town in the process.

"The Mostly True Story of Jack" is an amazing read. Readers will find themselves engrossed in the story and trying to solve the backstory of Jack. This is a dreamlike quality to the story that takes you on a journey to the unbelievable, yet you want to believe every that is going on is real.
