A typical family–husband, wife, and two children–were thrust into a life of uncertainty when their youngest son, Jack, was diagnosed with autism. Together, the family navigated a new reality they could not perceive while guiding Jack through a world his mind struggled to comprehend. Their hardest trial, however, came when Jack was diagnosed with brain cancer as a teen.
MY NAME IS JACK JOHNSON, BUT I’M NOT THE SINGER is the story of a family’s love, perseverance, and determination in the face of unpredictable difficulties. Through Jill Johnson’s journal writings and memories, we get an insightful view into autism, childhood cancer, and the strength of a unique young man. Often touching, sometimes funny, and occasionally heart-breaking, this memoir is Jack’s walk through a life well-lived, not because of adversity, but in spite of it.
