Jumping the Scratch

After So B. It, I think Sarah Weeks can do no wrong. And she has done it again with Jumping the Scratch. I immediately felt for the main character, Jamie. This poor guy has so many strikes against him - his dad has left them, his teacher is verbally very mean to him, the kids pick on him, and now we know that something else horrible has happened to him. We find out throughout the story that he is hiding a crippling secret and that is compounded when his aunt, Saffy, comes down with amnesia after an accident at work. Jamie is desperately seeking a solution for his aunt AND for himself. I LOVED the ending and was thrilled with the way Weeks brought it all together - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one! (Even though the narrator didn't give it all I thought he could have! Maybe just read this one!)

I also loved So B. It. While I didn't love Jumping the Scratch as much, it was still a good read.
