The book takes you through what this young man will do to get his story told, and how those around him aide in the endeavor. It's not an easy path, but it's one that is entertaining and rewarding.
That is what we all want: to see ourselves in books that let us know though even with the trouble we encounter it will be worth it in the end IF you stick to it.
MARCUS MAKES A MOVIE is about more than just a boy wanting to be famous. It's about that person inside us all that just wants to know they have something to contribute and their voice is heard.
Regardless of our age made we, like Marcus, tap into the creativity and spark and create something amazing.
