Jerry’s Madness by W.W. Rowe

21488312Jerry’s Madness by W.W. Rowe is the second book in the series.  In this book, Jerry is having issues keeping his anger under control, but what 11 year old doesn’t have that problem. He gets his first kiss, deals with his friend being bullied to the point he wants to commit suicide, and learns how to be nice to even his enemies.

Jerry is growing up. He has a friend, Monty that has bullied so much by schoolmates that he tries to kill himself. Jerry was caught kissing his girlfriend and is being teased about it. Jerry comes home one day to find an intruder in his home. He is knocked out into unconsciousness and tied up. Jerry finds out that a man who has been searching for this man ( the assailant) as he has mental problems. Jerry learns much from Wilcox besides leaning “The Look” and how to use it appropriately in this book. He learns about how empathy can make his world a better place to live in.

It is a fast-paced novel that gives the read messages of what bullying can do to a person, how to be forgiving and understanding of others. It is a book of hope. This book, like the first one, has a lot of talk of the Higher Self, meditation and karmic spirituality with his homeless friend Wilcox.

I received this book from Larson Publications via NetGalley for an honest review.
