My heart swelled until it exploded. ALL. THE. STARS.
Jimmy fell on his head as a child and his life was never the same after that. He needs someone to keep an eye on him. At times, he's so child-like, he brings that sense of wonder to everyone around him. At other times, he just wants his pizza, (every day), and he can be difficult if he doesn't get what he wants. Jimmy is a hot commodity, though. That fall on his head is credited, (by Jimmy's friend, Mike), for a special ability Jimmy possesses. What is that ability, you ask? You'll have to read this to find out!
JIMMY THE FREAK is my favorite type of dark fiction story. It has complicated, in-depth characters. As a novella, it has to make every word count, so it has brevity. Lastly, (and perhaps most importantly, for me) it has poignancy. I fell in love with Jimmy and I bet you will too.
My highest recommendation!
