Just Jake By Jake Marcionette
In 2014, 13-year-old Jake Marcionette’s book Just Jake hit the shelves. The book is loosely based on the author’s own life about a boy named Jake and his experiences in school, making friends, and everything else about being in middle school.
After Marcionette had finished his book, he found a literary agent, who managed to get him a deal with Grosset & Dunlap, an imprint of Penguin Group. Not only did they publish his book, but they also offered Marcionette a contract for multiple Just Jake books in the upcoming years.
