About the Book

Families are made up in all sorts of way, and it takes a holiday for Jack and his stepbrother Leo to work out their differences.

Ages: 9+

Instead of having to contend with bullies, Jack must contend with his family in this sequel to the bestselling I AM JACK.

It's the school holidays and Mum announces to Jack and his annoying younger sister Samantha, that they are all going on a family holiday to the Gold Coast. And family means Nanna, sort-of-stepdad Rob and his son Leo, as well as Jack's friend Anna.

Families are made up in all sorts of ways nowadays, and it takes this holiday for Jack and Leo to work out their differences and for Jack to realise just how lucky he is to have such a great family.

Ages 9+
