My Real Life Jacks, A Boy Named Brayden

Morning, Angels!!! If you’ve been keeping up at all with Spectacle, you know Jackson, Jacks for short, is one of Mirabella’s lifelong friends who’s living with Muscular Dystrophy. And if you aren’t familiar with the disease, here’s a little excerpt from the Mayo Clinic’s website:
Muscular dystrophy is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. In muscular dystrophy, abnormal genes (mutations) interfere with the production of proteins needed to form healthy muscle.
Recently I’ve had the pleasure of coming in contact with a family who’s oldest boy is living with a form of MD called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and it was placed on my heart to help them. After much thought as to how I could do that, I’ve decided to donate all the pre-order proceeds for Spectacle to the family to assist with any medical costs. See below to learn a little more about Brayden (my real life Jacks) and this brave young man’s journey with this disease, as well as links to pre-order Spectacle to help donate to this cause.
Love to all
Meet Brayden:

Brayden is a smart and witty twelve-year-old boy, who loves video games and sports of all kinds, especially football, but the only thing holding him back is that he has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He was diagnosed on April 1st, 2010 with the disease, which will one day (possibly sooner than later) put him in wheelchair fulltime. His mind is sharp as a tack, but his little body is giving out daily; the more tired he gets, the more frequent the falls. Luckily he hasn’t broken any bones (yet). He will one day need a tracheotomy to be able to breathe and speak, and his lungs and heart are muscles that will give out just as easy as his arms and legs. Most boys with this disease will not live into their 20’s, and the disease claims lives daily. To help Brayden in his journey with DMD, I’ve decided to donate all my pre-order proceeds to Brayden’s family.

Meet the Characters - Spectacle

Time to play the who I'd cast for the movie game!!! See my choices for Spectacle below.



 It's no secret that I'm a Walking Dead fan, but I didn't intentionally fashion Mira around the actress who plays Beth in the wildly famous zombie series on AMC, she just happens to favor her. I did, however, immediately think of Emily Kinney when I considered who I'd want to play Mira if the book ever made it to the big screen. Ha! I can dream, right? Though she's half Changer, Mira is fair-skinned with light blue eyes and blonde hair. She also exudes innocence with undercurrents of strength. Emily would be a perfect fit.

(Mira's best friend)
 Changers by nature are tall and broad with olive skin and dark hair/ eyes. They're also gorgeous. Slap some dreads on a tanned Gregg Sulkin and he'd be a perfect fit. Not to mention those lips!!!
Excuse me while I drool.

Jackson/ Jacks
(Mira's other best friend)
Dark, messy hair, glasses and a sweet disposition, Asa Butterfield is my number one pick!!!

(Luxxe's best friend)
 Tyler Posey screams Cole - he has those typical Changer traits, squinty eyes and... well, he looks pretty dang good with his shirt off.
(Luxxe's not-so-likable girlfriend)
She's nauseatingly striking with dark hair and piercing eyes. Lucy Hale, you'd be my ideal Taylor!!!

 (Mira's human love interest)
Mira describes him as having cropped dark hair, green eyes and bushy eyebrows. She's also so drawn to him that she hates herself for it. But look at him... can you blame her? Dave Franco would rock the role of Garrett.

Like who I picked? Do you have someone else in mind for the role of Mira, Luxxe or Jacks? Leave a comment below! I LOVE to hear from my readers!!!
