It's not easy being eleven. Just ask Jacob Young. He has big plans to create the best video game ever, but between church, Scouts, and his family, Jacob is having a tough time.
Things are rough at school, too. The Beast bullies Jacob at lunch, and Jenny Hayes calls him a baby in front of everyone.
It's a good thing Jacob still has his best friend, Eric, by his side. But would they still be friends if Jacob invited Eric to Scouts? Or even to church?
Jacob's Journal of Doom records the ups and downs of Jacob's life&the good, the bad, and the hilarious.

I bought this for my nine year-old grandson to read and he LOVED it. He was wondering when the next one was coming out. Please tell me they're working on a Volume Two!
Waiting for the next one!

Excellent book for boys on school, church (scouts), family, and life in general without being preachy, but just going through the natural flow of life. Similar to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series but it has a great message and was a fun read.
Funny and entertaining

My daughter loves these kinds of books. As soon as she got it she started reading it and loves it. I love how she laughs at almost every page.
Subtle gospel message tucked into lots of fun

I was really suprised by this book. I'm a big fan of the Wimpy Kid and I've read some pretty weak knock-offs, but this was really funny! It didn't talk down to kids, but genuinely relates. And has a nice, subtle, gospel insight. Boys this age are especially tough to shop for. This is a great solution. (Girls would certainly enjoy it, too).
I could not put it down!
