This book is a fantastic book with all the challenges Jackson family goes through. I would recommend this book to people who likes adventure or fantasy. This book teaches us that most people actually go through the things that Jackson goes through in his lifetime with his little sister, Robin and his parents, Tom and Sarah. This story also shows us to never let go any of the friends that you've taken away from your life.
