I'm Nobody: The Lost Pages Book Review

I’m Nobody: The Lost Pages
We’re all broken on this side of heaven, but we can make beautiful things from the pieces.  Agoraphobic Caleb Reed is about to step outside for the first time in seven years, meet indie filmmaker Iris Elliott…and definitely not fall in love.  It’s all because of the notes, the weird and wonderful notes he keeps finding on his front porch, notes signed by someone claiming to be long dead poet Emily Dickinson.  Caleb’s parents think he’s losing his mind, as always, but he knows they’re wrong. Something’s going on outside – something strange, something terrifying …something beautiful.
Read the EPIC Award nominated novel that critics are saying is “fresh”, “powerful” and “unlike anything” they’ve read.  In a world full of anxiety, I’m Nobody: The Lost Pagesis a triumphant tale of faith over fear and one that kids and grown-ups of all ages will love.  (A London Book Festival Honorable Mention Winner)
This book is so good.  I enjoyed reading every bit of it.  I am a person who has a lot of anxiety and reading this book helped me relax and enjoy life to the fullest.  I like that it's good for both kids and adults.  I am certainly going to pass this book along for my friends and family to enjoy.  I hope you will read it because I know you are going to love it just like I did.
