Jacob is the only one who can protect us all from a vengeful lunatic. But Jacob’s a tiny sixth grader who’s scared of his own shadow. And his only known talent is hiding. A misfit in his own home, a boy out of place in his own skin, Jacob has been hiding all his life—in his head, or behind his only friend. His kind of different just isn’t accepted. He thought hiding would keep him safe. But he was wrong. For Jacob’s hiding has buried more than one truth, more than one secret. Including a destiny and a duty that are his to fulfill. And a powerful talent. One that could doom his people. Or save them…if he can find the courage to stop hiding from the thing that terrifies him the most—the truth about who he is: A boy who likes boys. A boy with a destiny foretold in an ancient legend. A boy whose love could save us all.

And now,  an excerpt from "Jacob, King of Portalia"--

For years I’ve been terrified that someone would discover my secret.

It was my greatest fear. Because I knew that if Sammy found out, he wouldn’t be my friend anymore. And Rick had just killed any hope I’d had that I was wrong about that.

If Rick had figured it out, Sammy would too.

I’d hidden it from everybody. I’d even tried to hide it from myself.

Frantically, I tried to plan how I might hide harder and even better.

But I didn’t know that it was already too late.

Mom wasn’t the only one intent on ruining my life. There was someone else too.

And earlier in the day, that person had stolen something from me and discovered my secret. By Monday, everyone would know. Even Sammy.

My life as I knew it was about to end.

Jacob is a typical sixth grader who has a secret. On his birthday weekend everything falls apart. His secret's out, his mom's trying to get him to quit orchestra, and, on top of all that, his mom and Rick want to board up his clubhouse; the one thing he has left of his dad. Or is it? I would recommend this book to people who like fantasies. There are some moments where you'll be gasping. It is a very good book overall and hard to put down. When you read this book you'll be itching to get your hands on the next one. I know I am.

My Rating:
