    This book takes all your certainties and let them shaken to the core This book uietly breaks your heart through and through but rarely characters managed to make me feel a love so bright so pure and real This book doesn't need uirky teenagers or fantastic settings to enthrall you but pictures real life issues with such honestly and tenderness

When Jack meets his new foster brother he already knows three things about himJoseph almost killed a teacherHe was incarcerated at a place called Stone MountainHe has a daughter Her this book is short its only about 200 pages and it took me less than an hour to read the writing is very straightforward and easy but this book is anything but simple its a story of the highest ualityand the overwhelming value of this story outweighs any of its slightness because i cannot describe how profoundly this moved me especially the last two chaptersthis book is proof that stories do not need to be long and extravagant or deep with hidden meanings some of the most touching stories are those that are humble and speak plainly the kind of stories that dont beg for attention and yet strongly influence the reader regardless 3 45 stars

’t be shaken off Even as new bonds form old wounds reopen The search for Jupiter demands from Jack than he can imagineThis tender heartbreaking novel is Gary D Schmidt at his best Find all of my reviews at Christmas is the season for miracles you know Sometimes they come big and loud I guess but I ve never seen one of those I think probably most miracles are a lot smaller and sort of still and so uiet you could miss them I didn t miss this one WTF have you done to me Anna Good grief I had feelings two days in a row My robot heart is obviously in need of a tune up Orbiting Jupiter begins with Jack s family making a very important decision that of bringing a troubled foster child into their home You then are introduced to Joseph and your guts get ripped from your body instantaneously Since he left Stone Mountain he won t wear anything orange He won t let anyone stand behind him He won t let anyone touch him He won t go into rooms that are too small And he won t eat canned peaches Eventually you learn all of Joseph s story including not only how he ended up in juvie but also how at 14 he became a father to a baby girl named Jupiter You read about the bond of friendship and the true meaning of having someone s back You want to tell me what a sixth grader was doing in the eighth grade side of the locker room in an eighth grade fight Winning Oh Jack And you discover that you should always trust a cow s opinion of strangers If you re an adult you probably will end up finding the ending than a bit contrived but this story wasn t really written for grown ups to begin with and it still won t stop the onslaught of feelings you ve had up to that point If icewater runs in your veins like it does mine you may not cry but you might find you still need a bit of moral support to get through the rest of the evening I fell in love with Gary Schmidt when I read Okay For Now I read that before I wrote imaged up book reviews so Anna s getting a double whammy of linkage I m going to put it on record that I think he writes the most important middle grade books that I ve ever read and rather than reuired reading consisting of bullshit like Marie Antoinette Serial Killer my kids cough all kids cough should be reading Schmidt s books instead He makes you think he makes you feel and he makes you see the not so pretty side of growing up but he manages to do it in a child friendly way
