    A. M. Homes

    Paperback (Vintage, Sept. 5, 1990)
    In Jack, A. M. Homes gives us a teenager who wants nothing more than to be normal—even if being normal means having divorced parents and a rather strange best friend. But when Jack’s father takes him out in a rowboat on Lake Watchmayoyo and tells his son he’s gay, nothing will ever be normal again. Out of Jack’s struggle to redefine what “family” means, A. M. Homes crafts a novel of enormous humor, charm, and resonance, the most convincing, funny, and insightful novel about adolescence since The Catcher in the Rye.

    Born a girl during the Civil War, Jack has been passing as a boy in the slums of Five Points, Manhattan, since running away from an orphans' home at age eight. He makes his living at petty thievery, surviving pocket watch-to-pocket watch until he discovers a talent for gambling. Lucy is a bright girl trapped in a dreary life with her widowed mother. When she meets Jack on the street, her days are happier than they have ever been. But her heart is broken when mother takes her far from New York, perhaps never to see Jack again. Her new home in a rowdy Arizona mining town is as dismal as ever, but she finds a glimmer of hope in dreams of a career on stage. Now, to find their way to the life they promised each other, Jack and Lucy will have to dodge dangers and take risks they never dreamed of as childhood sweethearts.

Now seventh grade is coming to a close, and while Allisen is busy settling in to her new neighborhood (Book 22, “New To Get Used To”, in 7TH GRADE WITH MY FABULOUS FRIENDS, MY NEW NEIGHBORS, & ME), Jack is finishing up his baseball season without the position he wants and standing by as his superstar siblings achieve their academic dreams. Throughout the month of June, Jack wonders: Will his parents ever be as proud of him as they are of his brother and sister? Can his team still make it to playoffs with his friend Stivre as the pitcher? And is it even remotely possible that the girl he secretly has a crush on feels the same way about him? Word Count: 6,256A little bit of what Jack has to say on certain topics…School: “In elementary school, on the last day, you play games and chat with your friends. In middle and high school, you get tests. That stinks.”Sports: “Guys can get kind of weird about their sports sometimes. I mean, I like all sports, so I don’t see what the big issue is. My favorite sports are baseball and basketball, but I wouldn’t object if someone invited me to join, say, a soccer team or something.” Family: “I wonder if my parents ever look at me and wonder, ‘How’d we end up with this dumb kid in between the two smart ones?’” Allisen: “It’s kind of funny that Allisen and I are friends now. We weren’t when we first met. I mean, I was always trying to be friends with her, but I was pretty bad at it.”Stivre: “During practice today, he threw this really wild pitch that nearly knocked someone’s tooth out. See what I mean? Told you I’m better.”Romance: “I’ve never kissed anyone before. I mean, you know, like that. I wonder what it would be like to kiss the girl I like. I wonder if I’ll ever get to find out.”
