Then imagine for a moment that Jack took a different route south. What if he had gone through the Maine town you live in, or a town you have visited? What would he have seen? What adventure might have ensued? Write and submit your own Jack story! We’ll post your story online.
You’ve never visited Maine? That’s okay. Feel free to research any Maine town and submit a story. Or, submit a story describing what an eleven-year-old would in your home town, in your home state, and we’ll publish that story, too. Don’t forget to include fun facts!
