Living with Jackie Chan

By Jo Knowles

“Positively brims with intelligence, sensitivity, and humor.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

After fathering a baby, Josh moves in with his karate-loving uncle and tries to forget. But he can’t forget. So many things bring back memories of last year and the night that changed everything. Every day the pain, the shame, and the just not knowing are never far from his thoughts. Why is he such a loser? How could he have done what he did? In the companion novel to Jumping Off Swings, a teen father tries to come to terms with the guilt of his past and prepare for his quickly approaching future.

  • Promotes discussion of living with the consequences of one's actions and choices.
  • Received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, and Kirkus Reviews; an ALA Best Fiction for Young Adult selection and a VOYA Perfect Ten selection.
