Jack Wentworth is an exciting and inspirational story about a young man on a journey to find himself.
Karen captures the life of a youth who is coming of age. Although it is a young adult book, the lessons are applicable through all stages of life.
Jack learns the importance of self-esteem and wearing a belt. Jack’s creativity and tenacity make for an adventurous and enlightening narrative. Jack’s life intertwines with a fictional character that he creates, Toby. Jack and Toby overcome low self-esteem by discovering their truth, which they really are.
This is a story for all ages as self-worth is a life-long and evolving concept. In the beginning Jack maneuvers through school avoiding his bully, Ryan. As Jack matures his confidence grows and he focuses on himself. He stops giving Ryan the power to intimidate and control him. This is a refreshing tale of positive self-talk, how to feel good about you and how to stand up for yourself.
I enjoyed this is powerful story. It encourages readers to be fearless as we are all fearfully and wonderfully made.
