jacobs grandfather was killed by something that he doesn't know what it is and no one believes him. His grandfather's last words confused him and he became determined to figure out what they meant.
On his birthday Jacob received a clue on his grandpa's mysterious death from his aunt Susan. It was a book with a letter in it.
H- Ho- How did you get this?
In the letter there were clues on where to go and who to find and now all jacob had to do was convince his parents to let him go to an island
Peregrine? Wales? what the heck does this mean
He tried and tried to get his parents to say yes about the trip he needed to take and he asked so much his parents were too annoyed to talk to him for a while. Then he mentioned the birds that live there and his dad is ready to go. However, his mom still says no.
Hey! I could write my book!
Moooooommmmm why notttt?!?!
Jacob then told his psychiatrist about the trip and how it could help. The psychiatrist helped talk his mom into letting him go. That was it. Both of his parents finally said yes.
Do you really think it will help?
I do. I think it will give him the closure he needs to get past his grandfathers death.
The trip was set. The tickets were bought. Jacob and his dad would be going to the island for three weeks in the summer. Jacob felt a little heartbroken when he heard his mom say on the phone that she's excited for them to leave so she can finally have her life back for a little.
I can't wait to finallyyy get my life back for three whole weeks!!
