My favorite part was when Jack learns that his grandmother didn’t want to take him away, and that she really she cared. I also liked the parts where Jack took out the small elephant for hope. I did not like the parts when Jack got hurt or when he cried. I felt like I was feeling (emotionally and mentally) what he was feeling, but that means that author did a good job writing this book if you can take on the emotions of the characters. I would recommend this book to my friends.
