ABOUT THE NOVEL:
Enter a world where magic bubbles just below the surface. . . .
When Jack is sent to Hazelwood, Iowa, to live with his strange aunt and uncle, he expects a summer of boredom. Little does he know that the people of Hazelwood have been waiting for him for quite a long time. When he arrives, he begins to make actual friends for the first time in his life-but the town bully beats him up and the richest man in town begins to plot Jack's imminent, and hopefully painful, demise. It's up to Jack to figure out why suddenly everyone cares so much about him. Back home he was practically... invisible.
The Mostly True Story of Jack is a stunning debut novel about things broken, things put back together, and finding a place to belong.
The Newbery Medal winner from the author of the highly acclaimed novel The Witch's Boy Novel Study
