Jake


Jake. Audrey Couloumbis. 2010. September 2010. Random House. 176 pages.
"Joey Ziglar says it's boring, grocery shopping with his mom," I said. It was our usual Saturday afternoon trip to the store.
"Lucky for you, I'm not Joey Ziglar's mom."
"It's a little boring," I said. "Sometimes."
That Saturday morning trip to the grocery store doesn't stay routine. When Jake's mom slips on the ice and breaks her leg, well, Jake's life stops being ordinary. Jake's grandfather enters into the picture. This is the first opportunity--at least that Jake can remember--for the two to get to know one another. And while the situation is anything but ideal, much good does come from it!

I liked this one. It is a nice Christmas-themed, family-themed novel for young readers.
