"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I loved the main character, Jefferson, and his sweet little friend, Caitlin. My heart broke for her when her brother died. My heart then melted when Jefferson became the friend that she really needed during that time.
I will say that I was expecting more of a funny story when I picked this book up. Maybe it was because of the title. I think that the title gives it a humorous vibe. And, while there were some funny moments, this book is more of a heart-felt book.
This is a quick read, I read it in just an hour or two, and I definitely recommend it to all middle grade readers and those that just enjoy middle grade books.
*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
To me, it hit incredibly deep underneath the surface of grief, and the emotions within all that grief contains. It freshly stirred up, through the eyes of a young person, the feelings within loss, the wonderings of why bad things happen, and how to heal. Following the everyday routine of the main character, Jefferson, made me feel that much closer to people around him in the story.
In the end, I was truly honored to be taken on this journey through pain, loss, and the everyday joys of life. It was a healthy reminder of what life is. That nothing in life is easy, and that none of our lives can go untouched by pain and loss, but that there is healing to be found.
Reading this was a highlight for me. A true joy.
Thank you, Jessica Schaub, for sharing “Gravity”. I read the book from cover to cover in 4 hours, couldn’t put it down. (And felt a little irritated with my boyfriend when he suggested I take a break for lunch) What a great story for both young people and adults, too. Phenomenal insights on life principles and dealing with loss. I can’t wait to share this book with my friends. Great work Jessica!!
