What Jamie Saw

What Jamie Saw - Carolyn Coman

What Jamie Saw

"What Jamie Saw" is a moving, visceral dramatization of violence in the home, told not from the point of view of a victim, but as witnessed by a nine-year-old boy. Drawing on his mother's desperate strength, his own determination, and help from an unexpected friend, Jamie confronts his fear and anxiety.
Reveals the impact of witnessing violence even as it affirms the luminous power of love. Jamie's mother is there to catch the baby -this time. She does what she must to keep her family out of harm's way, but still the shock waves of Van's act reverberate through their lives. What Jamie Saw is a moving, visceral dramatization of violence in the home, told not from the point of view of a victim, but as witnessed by a nine-year-old boy. The impact of observed violence perpetrated against loved ones is profound and destructive, and altogether too common. Drawing on his mother's desperate strength, his own determination, and help from an unexpected friend, Jamie confronts his fear and anxiety - learning, adapting, and triumphing.

The subjective impressions that she records are unmistakably those of a young boy, and Jamie's subjectivity becomes increasingly convincing; the cumulative effect is mesmerizing. Reading this short novella, readers will find themselves quickly slipping into a mode of thought analogous to the protagonist's.

Their ability to face their fears and thus begin to reconstruct their lives brings this short, but powerful story to closure." -Children's Literature
