Jessie by Rebekah Lyn is book two in the Coastal Chronicles series. It’s about a 10 year-old boy during the sixties. How he wants to be an astronaut. He watches as the US sends men into space. You will read about him growing up until his 18th year. Jessie has three brothers and they stick pretty close together in their adventures and in school. The boys father drinks and beats the oldest and youngest, which is Jessie.
This book is an O.K. book it is mostly about Jessie and his love of the space program. You don’t need to love the space program to enjoy this book, but it helps. Jessie is a book about forgiveness and love between family. How it is really hard to forgive sometimes, but we always heal better when we forgive.
I recommend this book if you love family stories and stories about space programs.
