“Even the most disadvantaged of us may have unfound abilities,” Newsome says. “Ignored, these talents lay dormant and wither. When discovered and fostered, they can lead to amazing outcomes.”

A young man born to misfortune discovers a secret ability and enormous untapped potential in the novel “Jackie” (published by Lulu) by Sam Newsome, who is doing a new marketing push for the 2013 publication.

As a child, Jackie is labeled as mentally challenged. He is bullied at school and abused at home. Deemed uneducable, he is kicked out of school in the third grade. Thirteen years later he is reunited with one of his old bullies, Jimmie. A friendship is fostered and Jimmie helps Jackie discover a hidden talent. Friendship, luck and Jackie’s special talent are the springboard that propels him on a journey to fulfill his destiny.

“Even the most disadvantaged of us may have unfound abilities,” Newsome says. “Ignored, these talents lay dormant and wither. When discovered and fostered, they can lead to amazing outcomes.”

“Jackie” deals with serious issues in a humorous manner. The inspirational story of an unexpected hero defying odds and achieving fame and good fortune shows the positive resolution that can come when a person struggles, evolves, interacts and, ultimately, grows.

“I tried to make the story of a disadvantaged child continually positive,” Newsome says. “A positive or a humorous scene minimizes any depressing moment as soon as possible. I want to entertain the reader and give a positive feeling after reading the book.”
