Wild Jack by John Christopher- ADVISABLE

Christopher, John Wild Jack, 224 pgs. Aladdin; Reissue Edition, 2015. $7.99. Language: PG; Mature Content: PG. Violence: PG.  CHAPTER BOOK.  This book is about a boy whose name is Clive who is the son of a very important man in the government.  One day he is invited to a party and witnesses an argument going on regarding their servants/slavery.  The argument is over quickly. The next day at school Clive is pulled aside and questioned about the fight.  The police officers accuse him of talking about slavery and he is sent to an island for punishment.  He makes two friends on the island named Sunyo and Kelly. All three of them escape the island but then are captured by outlaws. Read to find out what happens to the three friends and whether or not they succeed in their quest.  I liked this book. It was well written and had fascinating characters.  I enjoyed how well the three friends worked together.  It was a suspenseful book.  MS- ADVISABLE. Student  Reviewer: JL-age13
