Loved it!!! Positive First Nations character who is funny, smart, caring, well-rounded, and in touch with the spirit realm. This book is written in verse and kind of looks like an e.e. cummings poem, with sentences that stop on one line and continue on the next. For me, this made the book very easy to read and I think a reluctant reader may enjoy this style of writing. It’s also a small book and pretty short at 183 pages.
The story is about a teenager named Jeremy who has just moved to a new school and is the only First Nations kid there. He is guided by the spirit of his Grandad who he calls “Old Man”, and he has a friend and crush in his classmate, Choyce. While the story deals with difficult topics such as bullying and suicide, it has a light touch on these topics and Jeremy is a very funny, likeable, and well-rounded character who you may fall in love with (I did). (Btw, lots of F-bombs throughout!)
Favourite quote: “what is real to us / is what we believe is real.”

Different kind of book done by Author Lesley Choyce . Written in free verse and once you got into the reading of it , it's easy to follow the form it's written in. Different kind of story also , but you do want to continue reading to find out where it's going and how it will all end for Jeremy Stone. Glad I did continue with it and turned out to be a rather good story.
