Jack's life is a crazy roller-coaster ride. His family is always moving, he suffers under desperate crushes, and he’s constantly facing crazy teachers, pesky siblings, and weird neighbors. To help him get through the good days and bad days, Jack writes in his diary. As The School Library Journal put it, Jack's "a survivor, an 'everyboy' whose world may be wacko but whose heart and spirit are eminently sane." This series from Newbery Honor-winning author Jack Gantos will charm children and young adult readers.
