Novel: Review By Chris Kocx Jasper Jones, the outcast and town troublemaker, lures Charlie, a young boy who is more interested in a world formed through the books he reads than reality. He is swayed by the promise of adventure and it is something that all teens can relate to. This book was a great read and I could not put the book down. It is a sad tale about a troubled town. Be prepared for a journey, not in any way a light read.

Late on a hot summer night in Charlie Bucktin, a precocious and bookish boy of thirteen, is startled by an urgent knock on the window of his sleep-out. His visitor is Jasper Jones, an outcast in the regional mining town of Corrigan.
