The Boy Who Survived Brexit is such a pure and sweet story.
Jason is an autistic boy living with his mother and older brother in Scotland. To occupy his thoughts and worries about the upcoming Brexit, his mother introduced him to disaster prepping. For a long while, Jason has been encouraging his family and others in their community to prepare for Brexit and what may or may not happen.
On the evening of March 29, 2019, all cell phones and other media shut off. Communication has been cut and no access in or out of Scotland is possible, people are starting to get in a panic. But Jason and his family are prepared. They have stocked enough dry food for themselves and their neighbor Mr. Campbell.
This little book is about the importance of family, community, and working together to survive. As food stores lessen, Jason’s family reaches out to their community. People donate food for a soup everyday. This allows at least one meal for the community. Homeschool areas pop up, as well as community libraries. Nothing is more powerful for people helping people.
And the preparedness of the community belongs to Jason. Thanks to Jason, people were able to stock up on food, clothing, and survival gear to share with others during this time of need.
The Boy Who Survived Brexit receives 4 stars.
The day Jason was worried about is actually here. It came quickly. Now we wait and see what happens.
