I'M NOBODY The Lost Pages by Alex Marestaing Book Review

I’m Nobody: The Lost Pages
We’re all broken on this side of heaven, but we can make beautiful things from the pieces. Agoraphobic Caleb Reed is about to step outside for the first time in seven years, meet indie filmmaker Iris Elliott…and definitely not fall in love. It’s all because of the notes, the weird and wonderful notes he keeps finding on his front porch, notes signed by someone claiming to be long dead poet Emily Dickinson. Caleb’s parents think he’s losing his mind, as always, but he knows they’re wrong. Something’s going on outside – something strange, something terrifying …something beautiful.
Read the EPIC Award nominated novel that critics are saying is “fresh”, “powerful” and “unlike anything” they’ve read. In a world full of anxiety, I’m Nobody: The Lost Pages is a triumphant tale of faith over fear and one that kids and grown-ups of all ages will love. (A London Book Festival Honorable Mention Winner)

Author Alex Marestaing loves to create. He's written for media outlets such as The Walt Disney Company, Lego, Thomas Nelson/Harper Collins, and The Los Angeles Times and has authored three YA novels. His latest, "I’m Nobody: The Lost Pages," recently won an honorable mention at the London Book Festival and was nominated for a 2014 Epic Award. Though he spends most of his time imagining ideas for the youth market, he's also written for faith based publications and has covered his favorite sport, soccer, in Europe and the U.S. for Sports Spectrum Magazine and Yanks Abroad. When Alex isn't writing or speaking at conferences, you'll most likely find him hanging out in California with his wife, three kids, and Milou, his dog.

My review;
The book I'm Nobody has a little different kind of idea than I am really used to reading. I suppose that all of us have our differences  and we don't always understand each other's motives for doing something. Caleb is a young boy that no one, even his own parents understand why he does the kinds of things he does. Is he really talking in the form  of found notes to someone who is really dead? Caleb knows that he is not at all losing his mind but is totally in control of  what is going on. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicty Group and all opinions are my own.
