What’s the story about?
Story Description: Story Description: In this story, Little Jack finds out that the parents of his maternal cousin, Jordan, are going through such a rough patch that they are temporarily sending their son to live with Little Jack and his mother. Little Jack finds this really upsetting because he and his cousin usually don’t get along. Jordan has bullied him frequently during past visits and was very abrasive about having to get his own way. Little Jack is afraid that his friends might join with Jordan in ganging up against him. To prevent this and other bad things from happening, Little Jack goes to his mentor, the Ancient One, to get some advice.
Please note: This boy is called ‘Little Jack’ by the older guys he hangs out with after school. Why? One of the eighth-grade boys is also named Jack. To avoid confusion, they call the older boy ‘Big Jack’ and this sixth-grade boy ‘Little Jack’.
