As an editor, I read a great many books. Scab is, hands down, one of the top three books I read this past year. I am anxiously awaiting Jackson's next book.
This young writer is going places!
I felt every emotion from page to page, rode the roller coaster of feelings to the highest high and the lowest low with Brannon. I shared his triumphs and his defeats.
Having children that have suffered similar experiences in college and faced the trials and tribulations of growing into adulthood, I could relate to Brannon's story. Not only did it open my soul to feel the raw, maternal feelings of "protection" and "revenge" from my maternal side, but it hit home with explicit descriptions of experiences similar to ones I have faced in my own life away from the college scene.
If you have a child that has left home for college or have one that will someday, you must read this book. I thought I understood everything after experiencing it with my child. Not so. Powerful insight from the daily journals of the one that lived the life will tell so much one can not imagine having not been there in the flesh.
I love Brannon's attitude about it all. As difficult as it was at times, his sense of humor, humility and outlook on life are uplifting. Read this book and discover for yourself why it is important that "one not change to become part of the problem, but remain who you are and hope for others to change to be a part of the solution."
There are many instances in this book to which I could relate. In my senior year of earning a Bachelor degree, I still face crippling insecurities about my talent and abilities. Having been through the mill of various roommates throughout the years, I can attest to the awkwardness the situations can cause.
By the end of this book, you will see the resilience of the human soul and psyche. No matter what depression may visit, a person springs back into life, even if unwilling at points, and goes on about his business. Brannon has done a tremendous job of conveying this concept, all with a candid, darkly humorous recollection.
Great book! Highly recommend it.
Highly recommended. Might seem a little high priced but it is a rather long book. I think it's worth it.
