Karmack by J.C. Whyte is about Karmack, an enigmatic creature that enters the lives of three kids at Higgins Elementary. Only Sully, the leader of the gang, can see this creature and it is his idea to name it Karmack. Sully finds out that Karmack's job is to create a balance for all the pranks these bullies have played over the years. He even warns them that if he is not able to balance the pranks then they will be met with doom. Sully has to save himself and his friends.
The story is enjoyable. The presence of a strange creature makes the story even more exciting for kids. And how would kids feel if every time they bullied someone or played a prank or trick it was boomeranged? That is actually funny and kids will find it funnier. It is a very relatable kind of story about bullies. Many of us would have met a Sully once or twice during our school days.
I really loved the idea of bringing a weird creature into the story. That added to the book's appeal. The book has an interesting message for young readers. The characterization of Sully and Karmack is excellent. The author's imagination must have been at its best while creating Karmack. Those who have been bullied in school or anywhere else will love the story. The book is original, fast-paced, and will definitely be enjoyed more by boys.
