With the world mourning over President Kennedy's assassination and his family reeling from the death of his baby sister, Jack decides that setting a world record will help his family heal.

Orca Book Publishers
In 1963, cataclysmic world events threaten to overwhelm Jack as his family tries to deal with the death of his baby sister.
It's 1963, and Jack's family is still reeling from the SIDS death of his baby sister. Adrift in his own life, Jack is convinced that setting a world record will bring his father back to his senses and his mother back to life. But world events, including President Kennedy's assassination, threaten to overshadow any record Jack tries to beat—from sausage eating to face slapping. Nothing works, and Jack is about to give up when a new friend suggests a different approach that involves listening to, not breaking, records.

This book is not just very interesting to read, but it is very meaningful and it teaches us and to an extent consoles us about the up and downs of life. Robin Stevenson has done an exceptional job. A must read!
