Summer Book Review
Sam Carrier is a talented runner, but his abusing stepfather, Old Bill, does not see him as anything but a waste of space.
Old Bill has completely taken over the family, making his mom, Lydia Carrier, scared to voice her own mind to stick up for her child.
Sam meets his deceased father's old friend, Geroge, who tells him the truth about his past as Jack Keegan, before Old Bill changed his name, and that everything Old Bill has told him about his father, James, has been a lie. George sends Sam on a journey to “Jerk, California” to learn more about his father.
“Jerk, California” was very heart-warming to read. I really enjoyed the book and would give it a rating of 10.
It was interesting to see the disease from another perspective, and the storyline was great.
