    Living with Jackie Chan was an emotional read. From the beginnin

    Living with Jackie Chan was an emotional read. From the beginning when Josh was first introduced in Jumping Off Swings to the very ending of Living with Jackie Chan, Each and every character showed a different emotion towards Josh when he needed it the most, and knew the right words to say to help him. With each character living with their own issues, they all join together to have each other's backs and to create an environment that will bring Josh out of his misery. Throughout the novel Josh transforms right before our eyes, for the best of course, into someone he never thought he would be a year ago.

        I don't really remember much about Jumping off of Swings bes

        I don't really remember much about Jumping off of Swings besides I liked it, and was a little nervous because of that going into this one since it is a companion novel. But I worried for nothing because I connected with Josh and though I didn't remember small details, we get the big picture from being in his head. 
       I really enjoyed Uncle Larry, he is happy, perky, supportive and a little strange, quirky, but still awesome. He really cares for others especially Josh, and I got really confused because he called him Sam all the time because of a childhood joke, but it became natural before too long and got used to it especially since his friend Stella picks up on it. I really appreciated extended family and the close and supportive relationship in this one. Although Josh's relationship with his parents is strained, I appreciate the efforts on both sides, and even acknowledging that things were rough for a while and nothing will be fixed over night. 
        The other secondary characters especially Stella bring so much to the story. She has a heap of her own issues with a possessive boyfriend. And as she becomes close with Josh, their friendship has to remain on the down low. But I enjoyed the easy nature and banter between them and the conversations that make them closer. Although I am in no way a fan of cheating, I so wanted them to be together because they are so good for each other. 
        Karate also plays a big role in this one and I was surprised how well it was tied in and made nature. As a fellow martial artist (well, at least I was before I had kids) I totally connected to those parts and understood how he liked to be a part of the group all doing the same thing at the same time and the power that can draw. 




    Bottom Line: Quick but emotional journey to forgiving yourself and finding acceptance with others.
