Susanne Gervay Australian Author Bullying

Overview

Being Jack is a stand alone novel and also the 4th in the I Am Jack books.

Jack tells jokes, has good mates, plays sport, loves surfing, doing crazy experiments and likes reading. He takes great photos and loves eating, especially his Mum’s banana cake.

But underlying the jokes and all things JACK, is that deep heart kids have. He’d put his life down for his family and his mates and certainly Anna. He misses his Grandad. He’s the man of the house, but wants to know who his father is. He’s the kid who was bullied like many kids, survived with the support of family and friends and became the Jack who stands beside others. He stands beside his Mum when she faces breast cancer. He stands beside Christopher when he’s attacked for being Asian.

He even stands beside his sister Samantha, when she’s irritating him with yet another dog project.

Jack’s a winner. We all feel like winners too.

Being Jack is real

Jack was bullied and it changed him. He worked through it with the support of family, school, friends, community and believing in himself again. It took a long time to get back his confidence. He changed from that experience and would always stand up for others when they are bullied and/or targeted. He is a really good friend.

As a sole parent, Susanne Gervay’s children were always looking for and trying to work out a relationship with their father. Jack loved his grandfather who passed away and he misses him. Grandad is a hero to him. Jack gets on with ‘Rob’ – the step-dad – but Jack’s on a search for a relationship with his father, wherever he is.

Jack loves jokes and mucking around. He can be very annoying and loud. But he believes everyone should have a chance to be all they can be.
