The Incredible Jake Parker

The Incredible Jake Parker

The Incredible Jake Parker by Angelo Thomas delivers an important message, and makes for a quick and light read. While the book may have some grammatical errors here and there, it is one of the few books that walks its audience through the journey of living with an eating disorder, but this time through the lens of a young boy named Jake Parker. Jake is no ordinary boy. He riding a career high, as a music sensation loved by all, when he his entire life is put on hold because of severe anorexia. We think this book, while it has its flaws, is a great book for people to get their hands on, to read about how eating disorders from a male perspective.
