Did you know Zach Braff has a brother? Did you know he wrote a book? I'm sure you've figured out that that book is The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green.
Jacob Green is the middle child in a Jewish family with a manipulative father. The story is told in first person by Jacob as he 'becomes a man' and his life starts to change dramatically. He's a teenage boy so there are plenty of awkward moments in there and although some parts are rather sad (his dad is pretty sucky) but it's also rather funny.
This self-assured, comic, yet piercing first novel deftly captures the struggle of an imperfect boy trying to become a suitable son.
