Yearly Count: 54
Thirteen-year-old Jimmy goes through some growing pains as he discovers what is important to him.
This has received some high praise, but I just don't see it. It's fine. There's nothing necessarily wrong with it; however, I would have included some important steps of his path (i.e.: actual advice for publishing). I enjoyed the part when he ventures into defending the graphic novel genre. The theory of any kind of reading is reading prevails. I do have my own age appropriate umbrella over that theory, but that's just me. My hope is that this book inspires young adults (and adults, too).
