Jack is a scrappy fifteen-year-old kid stuck in a run-down small town. Trapped in a violent feud with a cruel older bully and facing another bout of summer school, Jack’s got all the problems he can handle. So when Jack’s aunt falls ill and his runty younger cousin must stay with him for the weekend the last thing Jack wants to do is look after him. Unfortunately, no one cares what Jack wants. Set over a hazy summer weekend, King Jack is a tough and tender coming-of-age story about friendship and finding happiness in rough surroundings.
