Blurb from Goodreads:
All Jack Blank knows is his bleak, dreary life at St. Barnaby’s Home for the Hopeless, Abandoned, Forgotten, and Lost—an orphanage in the swampland of New Jersey. Covertly reading old comic books is Jack’s only solace. But his life changes forever when he meets an emissary from a secret country called the Imagine Nation, an astonishing place where all the fantastic and unbelievable things in the world originate. Including Jack.
Jack soon discovers that he has an amazing ability—one that could make him the savior of Imagine Nation and the world beyond…or the biggest threat they’ve ever faced.
"...the future is not written. It lies in the choices you make. Our future is ours to decide. Always."
Jack Blank and the Imagine Nation or also known as The Accidental Hero, is a heartwarming and inspiring tale of courage, faith, believing in yourself and many more. This MG book really surprised me.
Wow! I was so inspired by all the encouraging and motivational ideas and messages. It challenges you to stretch your imagination and dream big. You carve out your own future. Who you are now doesn't determine who you're gonna be.
Jack Blank is an inspiring story which I really recommend for all, regardless of age. The world of Jack Blank will blow your mind.
Oh yeah, one more thing! Look out for the sudden revelation that I totally didn't see coming. POW!!
