Im Nobody

I’m Nobody – The Lost Pages – Book Review

Caleb Reed is not your average 13-year old boy – and I’m Nobody – The Lost Pages by Alex Marestaing is not your ordinary novel.

For the past several years, Caleb has been grieving the loss of his older sister, and the effects on his life have been devastating.

He’s afraid to leave his house.

He suffers from panic attacks, agoraphobia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

His parents think he might be losing his mind.

But, broken people are meant to heal, and something astounding is about to happen in Caleb’s life as the story of I’m Nobody – The Lost Pages unfolds.

It all begins with the notes.

Out of the blue, mysterious notes begin to appear on Caleb’s front porch – notes signed by the 19th century poet, Emily Dickinson.

Intrigued by the mystery behind the notes – Caleb is sane enough to realize that a dead poet isn’t really writing him letters – he begins to venture further and further outside of his home to retrieve the mysterious notes.

In the process, Caleb starts to make real friends and reconnect with the world around him.

If you are looking for a book that critics are calling “fresh”, “powerful”, and “unlike anything” they’ve ever read – I’m Nobody – The Lost Pages is for you! I’m Nobody – The Lost Pages is a moving story with compelling characters that shines light on the plight of those who respond differently – more sensitively – to the events in their lives than those around them.

This EPIC Award nominated novel and London Book Festival Honorable Mention Winner is a great book for readers of all ages to read, discuss and share!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Oh yeah, that sounds interesting, I’d like to read. I myself am a person who reacts differently (autistic) and I like poets of the 19th century. Emily Dickinson, too.
    But I’ll have to wait until the book is published in German translation.
