When Jack is sent to Hazelwood, Iowa, to live with his strange aunt and uncle, he expects a summer of boredom. Little does he know that the people of Hazelwood have been waiting for him for a long time. . . . When he arrives, three astonishing things happen: First, he makes friends not imaginary friends but actual friends. Second, he is beaten up by the town bully; the bullies at home always ignored him. Third, the richest man in town begins to plot Jack s imminent, and hopefully painful, demise. It s up to Jack to figure out why suddenly everyone cares so much about him. Back home he was practically, well, invisible. The Mostly True Story of Jack is a tale of magic, friendship, and sacrifice. It s about things broken and things put back together. Above all, it s about finding a place to belong."
