  Jays Journal by Anonymous

Review by: Jade B.
Florida, Grade 10

One interest thing about this book was when he met his English teacher in the Pine Boys school, Pete. Pete got Jay into meditating and he made him believe he could move things with his mind. There was one point in the book where he thought he moved a pen with his mind. Pete was into witch craft, Ouija boards, animal sacrifice, and Satanism. In my opinion, I don't believe in any of the things Pete believes in. Jay didn't believe it was real at first either. But once he got more comfortable with Pete and he kind of brainwashed him, he started following Pete's foot steps. That was the part of the book that really made me not want to put the book down.

I give this book a 6. At first, it was interesting and drew you into the book and allowed you to create a image in your head of every situation that's going on. In some problems that he was in, such as when he explained that he feels his parents don't listen to him or take his feelings into consideration. I feel like almost every teenager feels that way at some point in their lives. But, towards the end of the book after he got out of the boot camp and started to stay out of trouble, there wasn't nearly as much drama in the book and there wasn't as many situations where he was getting trouble. The drama is what keeps us drawn to the book so when that kind of goes away, it makes you not as interested to keep reading.
