JUST JAKEintroduces readers to sixth-grader Jake, whose life is turned upside down when his family moves from Florida to Maryland, where Jake must adapt to a new school. Jake has always ranked the kids at school in his hand-made, humorous Kid Cards, and when he arrives at his new school, Jake starts building a new collection, befriending as many people as he can while staying under the radar from the school bully. But what happens when the school bully decides Jake's next in line for annihilation and his Kid Cards get into the wrong hands? JUST JAKEis a genuine and as Jake himself would say, AWESOME world of school, family, friends, and teachers; it's the product of a writer talented well beyond his years.
