The Story of Jackson Haddock by,Shanora Williams

<c>Jackson Haddock was once a carefree individual that grew up as a poor child in Cedar Hill, Texas. His family was all that he had but when a man named Cody Walker interrupts his life, he realizes that things will only turn for the worst. Cody Walker has longed for Jackson's mother and her love. He had even made a deal with Jackson's father for her but Jackson's father refused. But what Jackson's father didn't know was that Cody Walker is a man that takes no rejections and when he arrives at Jackson's door step, he is there with a vengeance. Walker and a few of his men kill Jackson's family right on the spot.
Jackson hears it all, knows it all, and somehow he escapes and realizes that he can't show his face around town again without being turned in. But there is one request from Jackson's father that Jackson soon discovers. His father tells him that Walker belongs to a group called the CSR. (Or the Cedar Hill Society for the Rich) Jackson's father wants him to find Cody Walker and kill him along with all of the other rich men that kill the poor people of Cedar Hill. And Jackson promises to do it for his family and his safety. After the news, he is forced to camp out on his own for weeks. But when he is found and picked up by Kerrie and Jessie Bennett, a rich married couple that takes him in as their own, he realizes that he isn’t the only one that wants to get rid of Walker. Kerrie and Jessie have also been planning to find and kill Walker and with them at his aid, he feels he is ready for anything.
The Story of Jackson Haddock is filled with deception, passion, hurt, broken hearts, and even romance. He encounters a handful of problems at such a young age that he isn’t sure if he will even be able to see the next day because his life will only remain at stake the longer that Walker is alive. But Jackson is a person that doesn't like to lose, doesn't like to fail, and doesn't like to give up.</c>
REVIEW: Shanora does it again! If you love a book that touches your heart, then this book is for you. Jackson is the guy every girl wants her boyfriend to be. His character was so true and passionate, I wanted to grab him and kiss him. There is not other love deeper then family, and if someone messes with family we do everything in our power to protect that. This book had love, action, and more then you can think of. If you haven't read this book you will want to. I love you Shanora because you have a way with words that is so moving. I am honored to call this fantastic author friend. Characters: Jackson: he is a boy who transformed beautifully into a man. Every girl would love a man like his. Confident, caring, loyal, and truthful. Kerrie and Jessie: I am sad how all of them came to be together, but I am joyed to know family is family no matter how they came into your life. They are his parents, the ones whovtook him in and cared for him. Five*****stars!
