Everything's Jake

Creator: XTR Creations
Age rating: Everyone
12 year old Jake really is the odd man out in the family. Overlooked by his parents, picked on by his older twin brothers, and overshadowed by his younger twin sisters, he should feel like giving up. Instead, he feels driven to make the best out of the worst situations.
