BOOK DESCRIPTION:

20140427-131449.jpg
We’re all broken on this side of heaven, but we can make beautiful things from the pieces.

Agoraphobic Caleb Reed is about to step outside for the first time in seven years, meet indie filmmaker Iris Elliott…and definitely not fall in love. It’s all because of the notes, the weird and wonderful notes he keeps finding on his front porch, notes signed by someone claiming to be long dead poet Emily Dickinson.

Caleb’s parents think he’s losing his mind, as always, but he knows they’re wrong. Something’s going on outside – something strange, something terrifying …something beautiful.

Read the EPIC Award nominated novel that critics are saying is “fresh”, “powerful” and “unlike anything” they’ve read.

In a world full of anxiety, I’m Nobody: The Lost Pages is a triumphant tale of faith over fear and one that kids and grown-ups of all ages will love. (A London Book Festival Honorable Mention Winner)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Author Alex Marestaing loves to create. He’s written for media outlets such as The Walt Disney Company, Lego, Thomas Nelson/Harper Collins, and The Los Angeles Times and has authored three YA novels. His latest, “I’m Nobody: The Lost Pages,” recently won an honorable mention at the London Book Festival and was nominated for a 2014 Epic Award. Though he spends most of his time imagining ideas for the youth market, he’s also written for faith based publications and has covered his favorite sport, soccer, in Europe and the U.S. for Sports Spectrum Magazine and Yanks Abroad. When Alex isn’t writing or speaking at conferences, you’ll most likely find him hanging out in California with his wife, three kids, and Milou, his dog.

MY REVIEW

This is one of those unforgettable stories that stays with you long after you close the book.
I loved Caleb, who was very much an outsider/recluse….I think characters like this have so much potential for growth as the story progresses and was totally pleased with the way the author handled this character. Anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved will sympathize with the way Caleb is. On top of that he’s dealing with his OCD, fear and panic attacks- yikes! I loved Iris, she was the perfect balance for Caleb.
I loved the authors use of Dickinson…I thought this was so creative and so unique- I loved it!
This story is a wonderful reminder of the power of friendship and how just a little bit of hope can go a long way!!!

*****5/5 STARS- LOVE IT; GET YOUR OWN COPY!!!*****
