John is a twelve year old boy living in North Carolina. He comes from a caring middle class family. John has gone through his entire life without speaking. He has chosen not to. The pen becomes his voice and gives him ability to change things. His clarity from not participating in the spoken world is seen by some as an asset. Is it one that will benefit us or doom us?
John Hancock is a book that challenges perspective. The underlying theme in the book breaks through what you consider as true and trods over the fact that we may be moving forward in life at someone else's accord.
