Ordinary Jack - Bagthorpe Saga 1 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ordinary Jack - Bagthorpe Saga 1

Jack is the second-youngest member of the Bagthorpe family - and the only Bagthorpe who isn't an eccentric and a self-proclaimed genius. As the sole ordinary member of the family, he feels left out and rather looked-down-upon. When Jack starts searching for something, anything, that he alone can do best, his good friend Uncle Parker comes up with a smashing idea: Jack can pretend to be a psychic, a Prophet, a paranormal phenomenom. Unfortunately, things prove a bit more complicated than either Jack or Uncle Parker planned, and hilarity ensues.
