This is Jack
Kristi Anderson Ornstein
High School senior Jack is having trouble living in reality. His fantasy life is making it difficult for him to be himself and connect with people his own age, especially Daisy, the object of his affection. Jack's closest companion is his counselor Mr. Hall and his office is the one place on campus Jack feels safe to express himself. Mystic creative writing teacher Mr. G assigns a future-self writing assignment that forces Jack to look deeper into his fears, insecurities and confusion. Jack wrestles with himself only to find a calmer more focused Jack in his dreamworld who will give him insight into living in and accepting the moment. Presenting this new discovery in front of his peers might allow Jack to move past some fears that have kept him stuck, and win Daisy's heart in the process.
