Just Jake by Jake Marcionette

Just Jake

I couldn’t wait to read this book when I found out it was written by a 6th grader, and I must say, I thought it was really good! This book is about a boy named Jake who has to move to Maryland when his dad gets a new job. Even though he was pretty popular in his old school, he has a rough transition into his new school. He makes some enemies right off the bat, but then finds out that new friends come in unlikely forms. The funniest part of the book is the interaction between Jake and his sister, Alexis. His descriptions of her are hilarious!! I also loved his favorite hobby, making trading cards featuring his classmates with their personality traits and special (or not-so-special) abilities. This is a great funny book for any kid who loves a good laugh!
