Ever felt you just don’t measure up and no matter what you say or do, you always come up short? If that’s true, then you’re certainly tall enough to read this book! Set in 70s small-town America JJ and the Big Bend is the story of a ten-year-old boy called JJ, or to give him his full title, Josiah James Mahoney III. Bullied and misunderstood, life has become an emotional roller coaster. Hating school and unhappy at home, things would be unbearable if it were not for Toby, his ragamuffin pet dog, and Grandpa Joe, a gray-haired, kind-hearted gentleman who is JJ’s guiding light in a dark world. Journey with JJ through the ups and downs of everyday life and share with him as he makes a life-changing discovery!
