Product Description
“Utterly Yours, Booker Jones” stars 12 year old Booker Jones who has been forced to give up his room to his ailing grandfather. A fledgling writer, Booker has moved under the dining room table, a situation that seems to be affecting him strangely. Booker's real problem is the writer's block that is keeping him from completing his work-in-progress, Space Cows, and delaying his dream of becoming a published author. His dream is finally realized, but not because of a science fiction masterpiece. Rather, it's fulfilled because of a deeply moving speech he delivers at, of all places, the Pickle Springs Middle School rally. Booker is not exactly your average 12-year-old, but his dilemmas, which range from a bratty big sister to long division problems, are common ones. The tender scenes between lovable Booker and his invalid grandfather are especially effective. (Lauren Peterson, from Amazon)
