Litfuse Review: I'm Nobody:The Lost Pages by:Alex Marestaing

 I’m Nobody
About the Book:
Caleb Reed is losing his mind. At least that’s what his parents think. For one thing, he’s scared of everything. In fact, he hasn’t stepped foot outside his house in over seven years. And now there’s the notes, strange poetic notes written by someone named Emily Dickinson. Are the notes from Iris, the YouTube obsessed 8th grader that’s been trying to make a documentary of his messed up life? Has his deceased older sister returned from the grave to deliver some sort of message? Or are the pages really from the pen of Emily Dickinson, the reclusive and long dead 19th century poet? With his sanity in question, Caleb Reed’s entire existence depends on finding an answer.

My Review:
 Caleb Reed hasn't been outside in 7 years, and he doesn't plan to start now. Or well he didn't plan it, it sort of just happened. It probably never would of happened if it weren't for these odd letters he had started receiving. Odd in the fact that they just popped up out of nowhere. He already has enough to worry about, he doesn't need one more thing heaped on to the already growing pile of problems in his life. Now, he has to find out what is going on and put a stop to it before it gets out of hand.

 Iris is so fascinated with Caleb's life--the mystery intrigues her. They have known each other for years, she also knew him before he was afraid to go outside. She starts documenting everything he does, and then she begins to notice him going outside again and wonders why.

 It's important for Caleb to figure out this mystery that has now taken over his life, his mental state depends on it. Will he allow Iris to help him with this strange mystery?
