Leaving Jackson Wolf
By: P.A. Kane
5 out of 5 stars

The story Leaving Jackson Wolf by P.A. Kane is a YA/coming of age book. It is a story that I enjoyed reading. It is about the life of a teenage boy who is trying to deal with school, home life, and love. It is a journey that I found emotional and also thought-provoking. Reading about Jackson Wolf had me at times smiling, sad, angry, and frustrated. His story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. The book tells of how he gains a friend in James McDougal. While you wouldn’t have been able to tell from the first time that they meet these two become inseparable. Bikes, music, and the girls in their lives are constant subjects between them. Both of their fathers like to drink heavily, and this is also something that they talk about. Wolf’s life can be chaotic and at times overwhelms him. He does at times have conflicted emotions about those around him. There comes a time when Wolf loses some of those in his life and he begins to wonder why and if it is life conspiring against him. Sometimes advice can be given that can help you find your inner strength and power. Will Wolf get the advice and help that he needs? Read this book to find out. I found both Wolf and McDougal to be very mischievous in some their actions. McDougal is the tech person in their friendship and Wolf is the one that pushes them to strengthen themselves. I also enjoyed reading about the part that many of the additional characters play in Wolf and McDougal’s life and their interactions with them. This is a story that is well-written and one I would recommend reading.
