I Am Jack by Susanne Gervay

A young boy, named Jack, lives with his sister and his
mom. Jack has a lot of hobbies from photography to fixing
things. His mom is dating Rob and Jack likes him but he
thinks that they are doing fine on their own. On top of
his problems at home, at school, a bully named George Hamel
got everyone to call Jack "Butt Head". Jack can barely get
up in the morning. He won't turn to his mom for help
because he doesn't want to make her unhappy. When Jack's
grades and participation are slipping, he thinks he must
find help. Will Jack ever conquer the bully?

"I am Jack" is such a wonderful book to read. I really loved seeing
the point of view of Jack. He is a very sweet kid and
doesn't anyone to get hurt. Jack has a lot of hobbies and
I had a little trouble keeping up with all of them.
Susanne Gervay did a great job capturing the harm of
bullying. "I am Jack" is an awesome book for a child to
read and learn.
