Jackson Thomas, a fifth grade boy with Asperger Syndrome, is back in Joan Clark s sequel to Jackson Whole Wyoming. This time, Jackson s in a new school with a new person telling the story. Hillary Branson has a real attitude problem, spunk, independence, and a tendency to lie. In Ann Drew Jackson, when the teachers assigns her to complete a science project with Jackson, Hillary tries to rebel in any way she can. As the story develops her issues are revealed. She and Jackson eventually discover that they have a lot more in common than they realize. Ann Drew Jackson brings to light a truth that teachers have known for years. Occasionally kids that have to deal with issues that are out of their control, such as Jackson, can become a guiding light for their peers. In Ann Drew Jackson, Jackson helps Hillary in a profound way. Jackson accomplishes this through being himself.

More About Joan Clark & Nathan Clark

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Joan Clark is the author of the novels Latitudes of Melt, The Victory of Geraldine Gull and Eiriksdottir, as well as two short story collections and several award-winning novels for young adults. Born and raised in Nova Scotia, she has lived in various places across Canada with her geotechnical engineer husband Jack. While living in Calgary she became a founding member of the Alberta Writers Guild and co-founded the acclaimed literary journal "Dandelion," She now lives in St. John's, Newfoundland.
Clark notes that the idea for An Audience of Chairs came in part from her own familial legacy of depression, with which she struggled at one time and which led a grandmother to suicide. "One of the things I was interested in was exploring the idea of family pride, which was abundant in my family. So much pride, in fact, that many of them refused to admit that their grandmother had committed suicide." Clark made two false starts at writing this novel, the first time 30 years ago. "When I picked up the novel for the third time four years ago, I was surprised that I was able to indulge my sense of humour, to let go and have fun. Once the humour kicked in, I was off and running."
Clark wrote her first published novel as a young stay-at-home mother, writing in longhand during her infant son's naptimes. "I had never written fiction before and was amazed that I had been walking around without knowing that there was a story inside my head. That joy of discovery has kept me writing ever since."

"From the Hardcover edition."

Joan Clark currently resides in St. John's. Joan Clark was born in 1934.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ann Drew Jackson?

Page Turner with Insightful Lessons for All Ages  Aug 11, 2007
Wonderful sequel...I thoroughly enjoyed this book taking me back to life in elementary school with characters and personalities of all types. It teaches a lesson of understanding and acceptance from many perspectives. This would be a terrific book for any upper elementary or middle school class library. Sharing this book as a class opens up discussion on many life issues that kids face while also touching on issues of Asperger's Syndrome without being preachy. Terrific I must find the prequel JACKSON WHOLE WYOMING. Joanna K-V, Author A IS FOR AUTISM, F IS FOR FRIEND.
