Here’s a story that is well written and thought provoking. Jackson is a typical kid from the ‘hood with a drunk father and a runaway mother. He is bi-racial so he feels like he doesn’t fit in anywhere. It doesn’t help that his good for nothing father tells him he doesn’t fit in.
This story got me to thinking about my own life and fitting in. Each adventure or mis-adventure that the boys took reminded me of the dumb stuff I did as a kid too.
Leaving Jackson Wolf feels like its written in the 60’s or the 70’s but then Jackson and McDougal talk about Trump and other current events reminding me that it is written in current time.
I can recommend this book to readers looking for a different kind of story, one that makes you think about what your doing, where your going and how your going to get there. A story that makes you think about your own personal actions and reactions.
