As seen on the Today Show and CBS Evening News, New York Times Best Selling Kid Author Jake Marcionette explodes into the middle grade diary style genre with a new kind of story.  Meet sixth-grader Jake Mathews, whose life is turned upside down when his family moves from Florida to Maryland, where Jake must adapt to a new school. Jake has always ranked the kids at school in his hand-made, humorous “Kid Cards,” and when he arrives at his new school, Jake starts building a new collection, befriending as many people as he can while staying under the radar from the school bully.  But what happens when the school bully decides Jake's next in line for annihilation and his Kid Cards get into the wrong hands?!! JUST JAKE is a genuine—and as Jake himself would say, AWESOME!—world of school, family, friends, and teachers; it’s the product of a writer talented well beyond his years.

I'm a retired school librarian and I loved this book. I bought it to share with my grandsons. The book is very creative and fun to read. I especially liked the Rules of Awesomeness. I think Just Jake will be a big hit with boys in this age group.

This book is excellent. Or should I say "AWESOMES". My 6th graders loved it! You should have seen the looks on their faces when I revealed that Just Jake was written by a 13 year old kid. We watched the author's interviews and read articles on how he found an agent and got a book deal now my class is inspired like never before to write their own books. Fantastic message from a young author who can REALLY write. Very funny and the Rules of Awesomeness are so obviously tongue-in-cheek that my students recognized their comedic value immediately. And loved them!!!

My daughter read this book and she finds it humurous. One issue, the consstants remind of awesomeness gets her annoyed. He hasn't guit "bragging" since the beggining. Your choice, but from my 12 year old daughters mind, it was not a favotite.
