Book Review: Always Jack by Susanne Gervay - Reviewed by Charlie (31 May 2011)
Great book for kids and parents, Funny, real, lots of quirky characters. They're people you feel you know.
'Always Jack' deals with important issues in a way that makes you 'walk in another person's shoes'. Not didactic and preachy. Makes you laugh and sometimes choke up.
When a parent gets sick, it's a way to talk, share and work it out. It deals with life - Nanna who's getting old and can be annoying; Anna who could be Jack's girlfriend?; the step Dad who's working it out in a blended family; friends who come from another country; the impact of war on the Grandad on Jack's mate - real things.
Jack's a great kid. You know him or are him or he's your mate. Read 'Always Jack' -it'll surprise you.
