The Mostly True Story of Jack-A Goodreads Review

The Mostly True Story of JackThe Mostly True Story of Jack by Kelly Barnhill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jack has always felt unneeded, ignored—almost invisible, but when his parents divorced, he’s shipped off to an uncle and aunt, who live in a small Iowa town. For the first time in his life, he is noticed. He makes friends, and he’s needed. He can’t believe it. He’s important. There’s an evil only he can right, if he can figure it out and if he doesn’t die first.
My favorite thing about this story of magic and secrets is that the characters are human. Even those who have extraordinary gifts struggle with emotions and ordinary life and they need help from a fascinating and likable cast of small town folk who are simply regular joes.
The story comes to a satisfying end when even the villain does the right thing. If you’re a fan of fantasies and feel-good stories, this would be a great read for you.
