GLENBURN – A New York Times best selling author speaks to students at Glenburn Elementary School, but this author is a little different than most.
Jake Marcionette wrote “Just Jake” when he was 12 years old. He’s now 15 and the third book in his series comes out this January.
“Just Jake” is about a 6th grader who moves from Florida to Maryland and has to adapt to a new school. The young author has been out promoting the release by stopping at several Maine schools.
“Its’ surreal, talking to kids and I feel like I can really speak with kids and connect with my message because I am a kid. I’m trying to get kids to do it now and follow their passion.” Jake Marcionette, Author, Just Jake
Jake also suggests that students be open to trying new things.
