Jesus Jackson by James Ryan Daley

Jesus Jackson cover.inddWhat better placement for an adolescent, self-proclaimed atheist than to start at a new Catholic High School? This story is a parallel of two battles for young Jonathan Stiles.   His search to uncover the mystery of his older brother’s death leads him down a path that runs into love, friendships, enemies and suspects.   Jonathan’s internal battle to find faith in something is embodied by his interactions with the eccentric character, Jesus Jackson.   This story was excellently written in the precise tone of a teenage boy.   Jonathan’s view of the world was so perfectly in sync with the angst of adolescence and the struggle to find a place in the world and something to believe in.  Jesus Jackson is able to perform his miracle and help Jonathan grasp the concept of faith.  This revelation turns Jonathan’s attitudes toward all religion in a new direction that allows him to begin accepting the loss of his brother and the possibility of something bigger in the universe.
