Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite

In Joey Paul's Cramping Chronicles: The Second Pang, Jessie Oliver, a disabled fifteen-year-old, tries to understand her new empathic talents as she communicates with other empaths in an empath online forum and strives to ease the loss and grief of a classmate. Jessie was ill but found she could feel the physical and mental pain of others instantly. As a result of the agony her classmate Marcus is suffering, she begins to seek answers and is on the lookout for the driver who ran into his family with a vehicle. However, as she proceeds with her investigation, her schoolwork suffers, prompting concern from her parents, who are unaware of her abilities. Will Jessie locate the driver, help Marcus recuperate, and preserve her secret all at the same time?

Jessie is an inspiring person who shows us how to be kind to others even when circumstances are difficult and we are experiencing pain ourselves. Cramping Chronicles: The Second Pang includes key lessons about social skills that are best learned at a young age, such as how to show you care for someone who is in pain, communicate one's agony and emotions, listen to others and understand them. This is evidenced by the deep connections and lifelike interaction between the characters. The book's thorough analysis, vibrant internet dialogue, and the inclusion of homosexuality are some of its other noteworthy aspects. Readers who have been suicidal, are close to persons at risk or others who have to deal with enormous anguish daily will find this book relevant. If there's an award for stories about empathy, Joey Paul ought to win it!
