Nix Minus One
Jill MacLean
Pajamas Press @PajamaPress1

I loved the way this story was told in prose.  It reminded me of both Love that Dog by Sharon Creech and Valerie Sherrard's Counting Back from Nine. Those who enjoyed the Travis Keating books by MacLean will also like this one. This young adult novel was well written and I really had empathy for the protagonist Nixon.  Jill MacLean told a sad story well but gives some hope at the end of it.  Although this novel couldn't have a happy ending the various pieces in Nix's life start to come together and I am hopeful that things will get better for him.
