    Jackson pretty much had a normal teenage life. With two parents who were overly worried about him due to their divorce, to his best friend, Brady, who pretty much had the best ideas for the both of them, Jackson's life was the way he liked it. He was just too excited about his senior year and the plans he and Brady were making, like getting an apartment close to school. <BR/><BR/>Then everything changed when Jackson hadn't heard from Brady for quite some time. Turns out Brady ran away right after the fight he had with his father when he was hanging out with Jackson. With no phone calls, messages, or any details, no one knows where he went. He was the talk of the town; that is, until his disappearance was all-too-soon forgotten. <BR/><BR/>Everyone around Jackson seems to be moving on. His mom is dating a very successful businessman who really loves her, and the prospect of getting married is very positive. His dad has met a personal trainer who he seems to really like, but of course she could just be another one of his girlfriends. And his friends are starting not to care about what happened to Brady. <BR/><BR/>Jackson's dad, mom, and even his grandmother are trying to get him to move on. It's up to him to make the move, to forget about Brady and find his own identity. <BR/><BR/>An edgy and realistic novel, WISH YOU WERE HERE is one of the few teen novels out there that even guys can enjoy. Jackson is a character that anyone can relate to, and the teen angst in the novel is current for this generation. A perfectly chosen novel for a personal revival.
